Growing up in Hong Kong, winter has officially arrived when I see hawkers push out their huge black woks filled with burning hot coals on a wooden cart.

You’ll know from afar because of the loud “cling cling clang clang” sounds they make with their long wok spatula as they flip the coals. 

As you walk by, you just couldn’t resist the warm sweet smell of roasted sweet potatoes (or roasted chestnuts).

Roasted Sweet Potato (Chinese: 煨番薯) is a classic Hong Kong street food. The sweet potatoes are slow cooked with the coals’ heat. The sweet potatoes texture is so creamy soft & smooth, somewhat like mashed sweet potatoes.

This ultimate hearty comfort food is simple, frugal, nutritious, satisfying, and delicious.

Let’s kick it up a notch with these buttery sweet & savory Creamy Instant Pot Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Don’t just save this Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash for Thanksgiving! 😉

Unsalted Butter – it’s important to use unsalted butter because different brands and boxes of salted butter will have varying levels of salt. Thus, by using unsalted butter, you’ll have control over how much to salt the mashed sweet potatoes in the end.

Fine Sea Salt – it’s important to season the sweet potato mash with salt to bring out, enhance, & balance the flavors of the final mashed sweet potatoes!
