Steel Cut Oats

Postby Dagny » Mon Apr 27, 2009 7:52 am

My family likes steel cut oats for breakfast. We cook in a mini-crock pot overnight. (not the candle kind, but the kind you might make a queso dip in)

1c steel cut oats
4c liquid (water, milk, combo)
1/2 cup dried or fresh fruit

Plug in, turn on warm setting, go to bed. After eating wash out crock before it dries to super glue.

They're the BEST......I can't believe I ate that gray library-paste crapola all those years :?

The steel-cut oats remind me of Red River Cereal from Canada. As soon as we acquire some whole flax seed, I will make my own version. RRC costs us over 4 frogskins/box in the local HyVee.......that's just NUTZ :x

My beloved wife, Heather and I just went to a Whole Foods Market in Omaha a couple of weeks ago and bought steelcut oats for 99 CENTS/pound :thumbsup:

It tastes GOOD, it sticks with ya' all morning.........I'll never believe the "Old Quaker" again, when he says..."Only me is good enough, for Thee" :roll:

We fed rolled oats to our hogs as a milk replacer when I was a kid...it sucked then and it sucks now :thumbdown:

Buy those steel-cut oats and SEE the difference :worship:

We like the steel cut oats here too. But we cook them in a SS pot, for 30 minutes with apples. 8)

But a baby crockpot is a good idea for camping!

I'm always willing to try something new.

This is what I have. Will it work?? It has no settings. It's either on or off, plugged in or un-plugged. On the bottom it says 120V AC only, 50-60 Hz, 80 Watts.

I think it will hold 5 or 6 cups of ingredients, I'll have to measure. Since it's just me, I guess I could cut the recipe in half. Also, "going to be" for me is usually only 5 hours. Is that long enough?

Ooops.... edited to add picture....

That looks to be the same size as mine. I would try it but maybe not overnight the first time. Could you plug it in in the middle of the night? Put the ingredients before bed but plug in later?

It's really good with dried blueberries.

I can use one of the timers I keep on the living room lights. If it works, I buy one solely for the kitchen.

Or I can just do a test batch during the day on my day off. That way I can watch it and know exactly how long it's going to take. It means I have oats for supper one day. I worked midnights for four years until recently, so meal schedules for me don't always happen at times the rest of the world observe.

I haven't been able to find the steel cut oats yet locally. That's what I get for living in Small Town, Mississippi. One of these days I'll find a health food store or something similar in Memphis and then will give it a test run.

Have any Mennonite stores nearby? That's where I get mine. Along with quinoa, frog jam and delicious sausage.

It sound silly, but you can order some from amazon if you are there ordering something else. Spend $25 to get free shipping.

We do Steel Cut Oatmeal on a fairly regular basis. (Curse you Alton Brown).
In our area, we can usually find McCann's in with the other oatmeals tucked away on the top shelf. It's a little on the expensive side and there are other brands out there however McCann's is very tasty.

We cook our's up in the morning. It is not instant however you can usually be eating in under 30 minutes. We save the rolled oats for cookies.
The quickest way to find me is on my business site. Yes, I do answer questions and provide quotes for free. Find me at: http://www.wenatcheefarmers.com

We get 'em (intermittently) here at United Supermarket.
I've seen 'em (not intermittently) at bigger HEB stores and some Wally Worlds.

Having never eaten steel cut, I didn't want to buy the expensive stuff. Quaker Oats has steel cut and they were the least costly. If I think they are good and not too much trouble, I can upgrade.

Now I've heard of steel cut oats but never tried them. I guess because I do not know what they are. What makes them different than oat meal? Inquiring minds want to know.

One solution to availability of Steel Cut Oats:

Image

That's what I do

From Groat to Throat in about 30 minutes.

Steel Cut Oats, The difference - The whole Oat Groat cut into two or three large (relative) pieces. Wiki it.

I set the grain mill on about 3. Same setting to crack corn before grinding into corn meal.

Figure I'll pay for the mill after cutting may 15 tons of oats :roll:
But also use it to mill Hard White Wheat, Corn, Etc. Etc.
If it's not broken, you're not trying hard enough.
