Steel Cut Oats

Just bought a box of Steel Cut Oats to try. I've never tried them. I love oatmeal and usually eat it 3 or 4 days a week for breakfast. I think I'm going to cook them in the slow cooker with some raisins and brown sugar. Anyone have any other recipes/ingredients, etc......?

No suggestions on the recipes. I usually eat them plain.

Bulk steel-cut oats are about a tenth of the price as packaged ones, btw. I get mine at Whole Foods.

I like them savoury. Cook em until they are really thick, then crack in a couple eggs. Add some cumin, turmeric, chili powder, smidge of garlic, stir, top with salt and pepper and parsley. Or top with some pizza sauce. Or even soy sauce.
I am weird. You don't have to tell me that.

I'm lazy. I just cover 3/4 cup with about a half inch of water in a deep bowl and nuke them for 3:00. Take out, stir in some skim milk, dried cranberries and maple syrup. Good stuff.

Bit more of a nutty flavour to them than regular rolled. Nice, but I prefer the rolled as they don't take as long to cook and I don't have a slow cooker!

If you have a rice cooker, you can put them in there. My rice cooker has a timer, so I program it to have the oats ready about 10 minutes before my alarm goes off in the morning. Throw in about 2 1/2 cups water per cup of oats, plus cinnamon/raisins/whatever the night before, and set it to porridge mode. Excellent, hot breakfast ready for you as soon as you get up.

I like to cook them, add a TBSP of peanut butter, and some chocolate whey protein to them.

I like to add them to chopped apples that i've microwaved and mixed with cinnamon and allspice. They also taste great with bananas and grapes.

I'm lazy and usually use old fashioned, but steel cut definitely have the better texture to them. Suggestions for add-ins:
applesauce...possibly with cinnamon and raisins
fruit (fresh, dried, or frozen)
chopped nuts or seeds
whey protein powder
flaxseed or wheat germ
peanut butter...or PB and pureed banana
trail mix
chopped up Larabar (or similar energy bar)
vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, or cocoa powder with sugar (or sugar sub)
honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, or other sweetener
pumpkin, sweet potato, or butternut squash puree
chili powder
grated parmesan cheese or cottage cheese
soy sauce
eggs or egg whites
yogurt (flavored or not, your choice)
Grape Nuts or some other cereal or granola
coconut
chocolate chips, butter, pie filling, m&m's, or nutella if you're feeling indulgent
cocoa powder or chocolate whey, cinnamon, vanilla extract, milk, brown sugar, and maybe a dash of chili powder for Mexican cocoa oatmeal
crushed graham crackers, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips for s'more oatmeal
Silk Nog, nutmeg, chopped pecans, and crushed candy canes for holiday oatmeal
cooked with milk (or chocolate milk), tea, coffee, or chicken broth in place of water
...or with a dash of Bailey's

also:
oven baked oatmeal
oatmeal pancakes
oatmeal cookies
smoothie ingredient
in chili or tomato soup (rolled might work better for this though)

My grandmother used to make Oatmeal for two days. The first day was served with berries and double Devon cream. Day two leftovers were mixed with egg, formed in a patty and fried in reserved bacon drippings.

Here's the best way IMO and saves time in the morning. The night before, bring your water to a boil and add oats. Stir untill back on the boil, then cover and turn off heat heat. No need to refrigerate, it's pretty sterile in there.
In the morning, simply bring back on the heat and stir for about 5 minutes. You can add in any sides at this point like dried fruit or nuts. IMO, this technique is the best for getting nutty-chewy flavor & texture, and doesn't result ing gloppy consistancy you get from the long cook.

I agree- the overnight soaking is best. It maintains the chewy texture very nicely. In addition to the above lists of additives, I add 2TBS ground flaxseed, 1tsp cinnamon, a palmful of walnut pieces, and some dried fruit (raisins, figs, apricots, pears, apples, currants, whatever). Totally yumsters.
