1 cup of steel cut oatmeal
3-4 cups of water in crockpot on low 4-5 hrs.

Yields 5 (1/2 cup portions)

I am able to purchase steel cut oatmeal in bulk at Sprouts usually when on sale for 50 cents a pound regular price $1.00 a pound...Cheaper then any where else...most places are $5.99 for 24 oz...
I prefer to cook it on my day off when I am around the house or early evening and then freeze it into 1/2 cup portions that quickly reheat in the microwave anywhere I have even taken it to work in my to go mug :O0 Yummy breakfast... These containers are 5 for $1.00 (8 oz or 1 cup)

I tried steel cut once, and it seemed to have an off texture. Maybe it needs the really long slow cooking?

We (including 9 and 13 year-old) prefer the taste and texture of steel-cut oats, next = regular oats, last = quick-cook oats. Oatmeal is 3-4-days a week breakfast for grands and us. I cook SCO same as regular, until done, adding some milk, brown sugar, salt during the cooking process. Has anyone else tried stirring peanut butter into the hot oatmeal? Good protein, and tasty.
