Spotted this recipe for steel-cut crockpot oatmael on The Greenest Dollar this morning. Julia and I have had steel cut a couple times and wanted to try it this way. Sounds tasty.
Here’s their recipe:
- 1 cup steel cut oats (DO NOT substitute old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats)
- 4 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2-3 tablespoons butter
- cooking spray
1. Start by spraying your crock pot with cooking spray- This was a reader tip in the comments section, and it really helped cut the clean-up time the next morning because the oatmeal didn’t stick a bit! So, don’t forget to do this.
2. Pour in the water, oats, salt, and butter
3. Cook on Low for 6-8 hrs.- The first time I made mine I did it for 8 hours with no problem. I even left it on warm for another hour after that until my husband woke up, and it still tasted great. I think you could easily get away with cooking these on low for 10 hrs., but I’m not sure if longer cooking time would impact the nutritional value.
