In an Instant Pot (Electric Pressure Cooker):

  • Add 1 Cup of Steel Cut oats to an instant pot
  • Add 3 cups of water (1:3 ratio of Oats to Water)
  • Cook on Manual, High Pressure for 5 minutes
  • Enjoy creamy Oats with all the toppings

Stove top:

  • Place 2 1/2 cups water in a medium/large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • As soon as the liquid boils, stir in the steel cut oats. Bring to a  steady boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low (gentle simmer).  Keep a close eye on the pot so as to prevent boiling over.
  • Let the oats gently simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping along the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.
  • For softer, creamier oats, continue cooking for 5 to 10 additional minutes. Stirring every few minutes until the oatmeal is as tender as you like. If the oatmeal becomes thicker than you’d like, add a little extra water to thin it out to your desired consistency.
  • Remove the oatmeal from the heat and let sit a few minutes to finish thickening.
  • Enjoy hot with any of your favorite toppings.
