I've had both steel cut and regular old fashioned oats. Steel cut taste different (in a good way, to me) and take longer to cook.
Here's some info I found by Googling it:
There are old-fashioned rolled oats, which are whole oats rolled flat. Then there are quick oats, which are rolled oats that have been ground up a little bit more to make them cook faster. Finally, there are the steel cut oats, where the whole raw oat was cut into smaller chunks. They all start from the same grains, but they are cut differently. Rolled oats are steamed slightly to make them cook faster, but otherwise, they arenít any different from steel cut oats.
