What others are saying
Randall Hauk says:
I know that overnight oats are all the rage these days, but I cannot get into them. This recipe is great because it nails the texture of steel-cut oats and adapts well to additions. If I have a little extra time, I deseed and chop an ancho chile pepper to add to the oats. When they're done, I like a little peanut butter & then I top it with fresh chopped apple. I also use coconut milk for my dairy-free guy sometimes. It all works really well.
Jen the Mighty says:
My favorite breakfast, at least once a week and I top it with brown sugar and marionberries. So amazing! Sometimes I go crazy and put applesauce on top.
Katie Hason says:
I love these pressure cooker steel cut oats. I make these in the morning for me and my fiancee, and we are both totally obsessed. Can't start our day without it! We top it with strawberries, bananas, and sometimes raspberries.
Sam Dalton says:
These filling and delicious oats were so easy to make in the pressure cooker. This recipe makes the perfect portion sizes as well. Next time I may substitute the whole milk for almond milk, but other than that I really enjoyed this breakfast recipe.
Cara Larson says:
So good my kids will eat it without complaint. They like to add brown sugar I like honey and almonds
Michael Moore says:
If you don't want to make more than one bowl, use a stainless or glass bowl instead. about 1/3 cup steel cut oats, 1 cup of liquids. Raisins, agave syrup, etc. On rack over a cup of water in the big bowl. Quick steel cut oats takes 5 minutes, regular about 10. Can be set up at night to be ready in the morning. One advantage is that it can be eaten right out of that bowl and there is 0 mess in the big pot- just water.
Amy D says:
I make this at least once a week for an easy filling breakfast. My three year old loves hers with a little brown sugar. I do too and add berries and pecans. So quick and easy. Great night before prep for an easy on the go breakfast!
Dave Giefer says:
Perfectly cooked steel cut oats every time. Texture comes out al dente and there’s a very nice nutty savory flavor. I use a little less milk than the recipe calls for otherwise the milk flavor takes over. It’s ok to use more liquid because you can let it sit after cooking for a few minutes and it thickens up. Just don’t use less liquid than is called for other wise you’ll have a dried up crunchy mess. 1/3 cup of dried oats is a good single serving size if needed. One of my favorite healthy breakfast items, so savory!
Doug Woods says:
My wife and I always used a slow cooker for steel-cut oats, but we have enjoyed saving LOTS of time with this recipe. We're very particular about our steel-cut oats and find that cooking them in the Multipot is the best way we've seen. Nice texture and flavor. A real winner.
Ellen Good says:
Tremendous texture almost pops when you chew, but not crunchy. I only added raisins this time, but will become more creative with the remainder.
Shirley Kerns Welcome says:
Love this healthy breakfast. So quick and easy to make just 12 minutes. I like to chop an apple and caramelize it in butter before I toss in the oats to toast. Then I add three cinnamon sticks to the milk and water and proceed as directed. I like to eat my oats with brown sugar and milk.
Sherrie Reed Guerin says:
Followed the recipe exactly, the oats were great, but burned on the bottom. Looks like I'll be soaking the pot for awhile. I've been cooking in electric pressure cookers for about eight years so am not a newbie. I notice that other recipes for steel cut oats in an electric pressure cooker call for twice the amount of liquid. Think I'll try one of those & see how it turns out.
Ivonne Norman says:
This was super simple and came out very creamy. I’ll be whipping this together on the weekends for easy weekday morning meals.
Michelle Benoit says:
Easy and delicious!
Kristin Slink says:
I substituted coconut milk (silk) and added some honey and dried blueberries. Delicious!
