Cooking steel-cut oats in a pressure cooker means the grains tenderize quickly, without any stirring and without any risk of boiling over, making this breakfast staple a breeze to prepare. To build rich flavor, we start by cooking a couple tablespoons of butter until fragrant and nutty, then toast the oats, along with a small measure of allspice, in the browned butter to bring out notes of butterscotch and caramel. Dried apples add tangy, fruity flavor; their texture softens as they cook with the oats.




Don’t use rolled oats, not even slower-cooking old-fashioned rolled oats, as they will turn mushy. Steel-cut oats are much sturdier and can stand up to pressure cooking. Also, keep a close eye on the butter as it cooks because goes quickly from brown and nutty to scorched.
