They take way too long cook. I just use rolled oats.

I never eat regular oats because I don't like them. But I love steel cut oats. I have cooked them in the slow cooker overnight. Two cups oats, 8 cups water, I add craisins, cup up dried apricots, raisins, vanilla and cinnamon. Great to wake up to. I do spray the slow cooker with some vegetable spray to prevent sticking. I have also made this on top of the stove.
Steel cut oats are totally different from rolled oats...in looks, taste and cooking!. They are nutty and chewy in texture. They take about 30 min. to cook and you have to watch constantly and stir often. I make 6 servings at a time , usually on a Sat I then dish them in individual dishes/w lids to take to work with me. I eat them cold, but you can reheat in micro. too. They are better for you than reg rolled oats, more vitamins and fiber.
I'm not sure the proportions, but you can prepare it by simmering it on the stove. It takes longer to cook, though. From what I've read, there's really no nutritional difference between steel cut oats and rolled oats. Even from an environmental standpoint, it's hard to name a clear winner since while rolled oats take more processing at the factory, steel cut oats require more heating at home. I would just go by personal taste. Maybe try the steel cut oats just for something different (maybe on weekends when there's more time to prepare breakfast?)

Can someone tell me more about steel cut oatmeal. How do you prepare it? I usually eat regular quick oats with a little bit of skim milk, I tsp butter, little splenda and a banana. Oh I also throw in some wheat bran. I have heard the steel cut oats are better for you though.
