If you’ve tried steel cut oatmeal, you would never go back to old-fashioned rolled, quick, or instant oats…except for one caveat. The taste is superior for sure but the amount of time it takes to cook the oats is absolutely unrealistic for busy mornings. Thanks to America’s Test Kitchen, I now know of a great way to cook steel cut oats in five minutes amidst routine of morning chaos. This is one of the best recipes I got to test for upcoming issues of Cook’s Illustrated.
As a member of Friends of Cook’s Illustrated, I receive recipes in my inbox from America’s Test Kitchen to test. Sometimes the recipes are not typically what I would cook and sometimes the cooking directions are a little unconventional. However, it is always exciting to see what’s coming up in future issues of the magazine. There were only a couple of occasions when time constraint or limitation of ingredients prevented me from trying out the recipes. As much as I love the more complicated recipes, I am most fond of new and improved ways of making old favourites.
