I bought a carton thinking they'd be better than rolled oats. I like them much better in winter, and not often.
How else can you use these long cooking time oats? I'm thinking they'd make great cookies, and quick breads, but not how.
I do know they're great in bean/lentil loaves (cooked)
Any ideas?

Alright, I just thought it would be a good topic of discussion.
Apparently so did Bob's Red Mill!
Google search found a contest for using steel cut oats (Bob's red mill oats) in an original recipe video! Ends 7/20/2012.

I don't suppose anyone wants to share now? Maybe after we have a winner...

Eh, I don't have any recipes, because I've never thought of using it in anything other than a porridge, but it's a good idea. I'm going to try the oat *risotto* idea.

Great minds think alike ! I was going to put this up this morning ! :p

Steel cut oats or Pinhead oats for the UK, are far tastier than oat flakes. Steel cut/pinhead oats porridge
makes a very substantial breakfast for those you don't have time for lunch.

I particulary like Alton Brown's recipe where he gently toasts the oats in butter(vegan for us) before cooking them. I usually make a batch for the week, put it into a container and gently heat it up every morning. I like it served with
a drizzle of maple syrup (often sugar free) blueberries and soya or Oatly cream. :lick:

It is one of those grains that does tend to go slightly mushy when cooked so I think it would
be great for soups or savory loaves and burgers.
This thread reminds me that I have to put this on my shopping list.

Dreena Burtons Let them eat Vegan was on my Amazon picks, so I browsed the Look inside feature.
What a lot of recipes they give away! Sounds like a very good book:

Anyway, there's a chili recipe that she lists either bulgar wheat or steel cut oats! That seems perfect to turn a soup into a stew, or for a creamy soup!.
She also grinds them for flour, which I often do with reg. oats, but now I've got two full containers of steel cut.

I've thought they'd make great "swedish meetballs", since I used to use oats for them before.
