I made big amount of cooked steel cut oats and we ate it for breakfast or lunch whole week. Cooked oat great with so many additions, from savory to sweet. I love my oats with fried egg and Parmesan or cottage cheese, but also I love it with something sweet, like stewed apples or cherry compote.
For steel cut oat:
4 to 6 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Combine water (add more water if you want porridge), oats and salt in a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Cover with lid and cook on low for 7-8 hours or overnight.
For stewed apples:
4-6 Granny Smith or over tart apples, sliced and peeled
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup apple cider
Spray slow cooker bowl with cooking spray. In slow cooker, mix apples and lemon juice. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon; toss to coat. Pour cider over apples.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 hours 30 minutes or until apples are tender.
