Over at Pinch My Salt people are going ga ga over steel cut oats. And they have to cook them for at least 25 minutes.
I, too, like steel cut oats and in fact Alex of the Facebook group Lorna Sass is my homegirl reviewed my DVD and saw that I have a recipe for a cooked cereal. He asked about cooking steel cut oats. And the recipe for that is the same as any chunky grain cereal. (This recipe works for 9 grain or other cut grain cereal, too.)
Take 3 cups of liquid — I like to use 2 cups water and 1 cup nondairy milk for each 1 cup of steel cut oats. I add a cinnamon stick or two, the oats or other grain, and a pinch of salt. I lock the lid on my pressure cooker and bring to high pressure over high heat. I set my timer for 3 minutes. When the cooker gets to high heat, turn the heat down and get your timer going.
After 3 minutes, move the pot off the hot burner and let the pressure come down naturally. Open the lid carefully, and add what you like. If the mixture seems too liquid, put the lid back on the pressure cooker and let the pot sit for a few more minutes. I like to remove the cinnamon sticks, and add ground flax, raisins, chopped up apple, toasted walnuts or sunflower seeds, and a bit of agave or maple syrup for sweetener. It’s a filling meal.
Remember that whole grains (or even steel cut ones) are good for you. If you don’t want to make your own and dole it out for daily dishes which is a great idea, you can go to Jamba Juice where they are now selling organic steel cut oats. Unfortunately for me, they cook them in milk but at least they have them. Read more here.
