The cut grain of steel-cut oats takes longer
to cook than rolled oats - but the result is a distinctive, chewy
texture that makes it all worthwhile! As an added treat, toss
in raisins, chopped dates, fresh blueberries, sliced bananas
or your favorite nuts (toasted nuts are terrific) into individual
Another delicious recipe from our Family-Favorite
- 4 cups water
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 1 cup steel-cut oats (also called Irish
oatmeal and Scotch oats)
- Bring water and salt to a boil in medium
saucepan. Stir in oats, bring back up to a boil; reduce heat
and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally at first and more
frequently as mixture thickens, for about 25 to 30 minutes or
until the grains have absorbed most of the water.
- Remove from heat and serve immediately,
or if a thicker texture is desired, cover saucepan and let sit
for a few minutes.
- As desired, serve oatmeal porridge sweetened
with granulated sugar, brown sugar or honey and topped with a
drizzle or more of milk, cream or half-and-half.
Makes 4 servings.
A wee bit of Oatmeal Trivia: A bowl of
Irish steel-cut oatmeal is traditionally served with buttermilk...but
I won't hold you to tradition, especially since I personally
much prefer plain milk or cream!
