Steel cut oats always intimidated me with their cooking instructions.
But no more! I stumbled upon a method of making them that is so easy..I just had to share.
Step 1) Add 1 cup of steel cut oats to a large pot (for 4 servings).
Step 2) Add 2 1/2- 3 cups of water to the oats
Step 3) Place pot on stove and bring to a boil
Step 4) Once the oats/water comes to a boil. Turn off the heat, put a lid on the pot and leave it on the stove.
Step 5) Walk away for about 45 minutes or so and when you come back, you'll have a big pot of steel cut oats!
I store mine in the fridge in a container for the week.
When I want some oatmeal, I scoop 1/2 cup out and add a little water. I microwave it for about 2 minutes (with wax paper on top) and...
I've got a steaming bowl of steel cut oats!
Then I add my toppings. My favorites are cinnamon, agave, almond butter, fruit and chia seeds.
