  1. Combine rutabaga and water in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 7 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Drain rutabaga in a colander and return to Instant Pot(R). Select Saute function. Cook on low until rutabaga starts to sizzle, about 5 minutes. Cancel Saute mode. Season with brown sugar, butter, and pepper. Use an immersion blender to mash rutabaga until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
