Irish Oatmeal

08 Nov

“Irish oatmeal” is oatmeal that has been made from steel-cut oats. Unlike rolled oats or instant oatmeal, steel-cut oats take a long time to cook. Irish oatmeal is popular in Britain. Because Irish oatmeal is less processed than rolled oats or instant oatmeal, it is higher in fiber, B vitamins, calcium and protein. There is some evidence that oatmeal can help lower cholesterol levels. -Biondolillo M., 2009



  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 cup Steel-cut Oats (Irish Oats)
  • 4 tsp. Brown Sugar

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the water and salt. Bring to a boil. Gradually add the oats, stirring constantly.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer. Stir frequently until water is absorbed and oats creamy, about 30 minutes.

Divide cooked oats into 4 bowls. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on each bowl of oats. Serve immediately.
