Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal
If you’re not familiar with steel cut oatmeal you need to be! It is my favorite and I don’t make it near enough. This type of oatmeal is processed by cutting the whole oat groat into pieces instead of rolling it (like rolled oats). It almost looks like a grain of rice that’s been cut into pieces. Because it’s cylindrical in shape it takes a while to cook, much longer than rolled oats. It has a chewy texture that retains much of its shape even after cooking.
Why use the Instant Pot to make steel cut oatmeal? You can cook steel cut oatmeal on the stove in about the same amount of time as the Instant Pot (once you figure in the time that the pot takes to build and release pressure). However, I love using the IP to make steel cut oats because I just throw everything in the pot and walk away. Whereas, if you make it on the stove you’ll have to wait for the water to boil, stir it, make sure it doesn’t get burned on the bottom, etc. I usually throw the oatmeal into the Instant Pot and then go jump in the shower. After I’m ready for the day I have a delicious bowl of hearty oatmeal to eat for breakfast.
Pumpkin spice lovers will rejoice to add another pumpkin recipe to their repertoire. And you can feel good about that fact that this oatmeal will stick to your ribs and keep you full until lunch. My kids and my husband were skeptical to try this oatmeal but ended up loving it.

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?
To make Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.Print
