Steel-cut oats, also called pinhead oats, coarse oatmeal, or Irish oatmeal are groats of whole oats which have been chopped into two or three pinhead-sized pieces.
The pieces can then be processed to make rolled oat flakes, of smaller size than flakes of whole groats.
Steel-cutting produces oatmeal with a chewier and coarser texture than other processes.
When cooked correctly, steel-cut oats provide a hearty and deliciously yummy breakfast.
Unlike rolled oats, steel-cut oats take a bit longer to cook.
They typically take 15-30 minutes to cook, depending on the brand and amount.
You can reduce the cooking time by pre-soaking the oats in water the night before.
