Re: what to do with steel cut oatmeal?

If you like steel cut oats as oatmeal, it freezes very well. My DH loves it but doesn't have time to make it in the morning (and my crockpot cooks too hot to do it overnight.) I make a big batch and freeze it in individual containers, he can just pop it in the microwave in the morning at work. I usually add fruit/spices/brown sugar.

Re: what to do with steel cut oatmeal?

Here's a no-cook method (eaten cold with a chewy texture): pour 1 cup of steel-cut oats into a bowl, mix with about 2 cups milk, a dollop of honey, and a bit of cinnamon and ginger. Optionally add a scoop of raisins, too, and a bit of grated citrus zest. Refrigerate the oats overnight. (If you want to do just a little extra work, you can sauté them in a little butter first.) In the morning the oats have softened enough to eat. They are delicious when eaten cold, mixed with some grated apple or chopped peaches, or topped with blueberries and almonds.

Here's an overnight stove-top (not slow cooker) method: The previous night boil six cups of water, stir in the oatmeal, let boil for 1-minute, turn off the heat and cover. The next morning, you turn the heat back on and let it boil for 7-10 minutes. Optionally add sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, almonds, cranberries and/or a bit of maple syrup.

Re: what to do with steel cut oatmeal?

I make ours the night before, kinda...I boil 4 cups of water add the 1 cup of oats, stir and remove from heat...when its cool enough to touch I give it a stir and put the whole pot in the fridge over night...the next morning all I have to do is heat and season it...I do wanna try it in the crockpot though ...would be nice to wake up to it ready and hot making the house smell nice!

good idea!! does it still maintain the added health benefits over quick oats? (maybe a dumb Q)...

Re: what to do with steel cut oatmeal?

I don't see why it wouldnt retain the same health benefits. Something interesting I found out years ago when I was making all our own bread and using my wheat grinder......75% of all the nutrition oxidizes withing 24 hours after grinding flour. Its better to grind and use what you need at that time. It retains more nutrition.
