Steel Cut Oats
Steel cut oats are made from oat groats which are cut into smaller pieces using a steel blade. Steel cut oats are also sometimes called Irish oats and are most closely related to the original, unprocessed oat groat. Steel cut oats are more coarse than other types of oats, have chewier texture and nuttier flavor. They usually require longer soaking and cooking times. However, you can soak steel-cut oats beforehand to reduce the cooking time. Steel cut oats are high in dietary fiber, have a low glycemic index and can give sustained energy. They make a delicious traditional oatmeal.
