Steel cut oats, also known as Irish oats or pinhead oats, are made from whole grain oat groats that have been cut into small pieces on a steel burr mill, then lightly toasted to bring out the wonderfully nutty flavor. Cooking steel cut oats takes a bit longer than rolled varieties, but the result is a uniquely delicious, terrifically satisfying porridge that is well worth the extra time. Simply add water and a pinch of salt, then simmer on the stove for about 20 minutes, and you’ll have a pot of organic gluten free oatmeal that is the perfect combination of chewy and creamy.
Did you know you can also cook our steel cut oats in a slow cooker or crock pot? Combine 4 cups water, 1 cup oats and ½ tsp salt in a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Set it, forget it, and eight hours later, you’ll have 4 hearty servings of oatmeal ready to eat.
Steel cut oats are great for sweet or savory oatmeal. Try them topped with maple syrup and butter; make it decadent with a spoonful of chocolate-hazelnut spread and a bit of whipped cream; or create a protein-packed breakfast bowl by topping steel cut oatmeal with a fried egg, bacon and a dash of hot sauce. For an extra nutritional boost, add a spoonful of flaxseed meal to your oatmeal (Bob always does!).
Beyond a nutritious breakfast, steel cut oats can be used for lunch and dinner, too! For a new twist on a favorite cold grain salad, use steel cut oats instead of couscous or quinoa. Try steel cut oats instead of rice for a unique take on risotto. You can also use steel cut oats in meatloaf, fritters, veggie burgers, and so much more.
