How to Pressure Cook Steel Cut Oats

Save

Oatmeal varieties are named for their cut. Steel-cut oats resemble small pin-heads and take longer to cook than rolled or quick oats. Also called Irish oats, steel-cut oats can take more than 30 minutes to cook on a stove top, but with a pressure cooker, you can reduce this time drastically. Pre-toasting the oats is optional, but it both improves the flavor and shortens the cooking time.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking sheet
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • Small stainless steel pot
  • Tripod or trivet
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 tbsp. butter or oil
  • Optionally toast the oats on an ungreased baking sheet in a preheated 300 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes.

  • Arrange the pot on top of a tripod inside of the pressure cooker.

  • Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pressure cooker, under the stainless steel pot.

  • Add the toasted or untoasted oats and 4 cups water and the butter or oil to the stainless steel pot.

  • Bring the pressure cooker according to your manufacturer's instructions to 15 psi.

  • Begin timing once the pressure reaches 15 psi. Cook the oats for 5 to 6 minutes if they were toasted or 10 to 11 minutes for untoasted steel-cut oats.

  • Remove the pressure cooker from the heat source and wait for the pressure to naturally lower as the pot cools before removing the lid.
