About the recipe

Steel-cut oats carry a notoriously long cooking time; however, using an Instant Pot chops the active cooking time down to just six minutes under high pressure. This recipe illustrates the most basic liquid-to-oats ratio, using simply water and oats, but you can substitute some of the water with milk or almond milk for more richness or flavor.
