Steel-cut oats capitalize on the Durotherm's off-heat cooking ability. Since the pot holds heat exceptionally well, the oats will stay hot for up to 2 hours after they finish cooking, meaning you could make these well ahead of guests arriving. In this recipe, cardamom, apricots and pistachio add spice, tartness and texture to the creamy oats.




If using a gas stove, don't allow the flames to reach the sides of the Durotherm pot.

45 minutes


  • 2

    tablespoons salted butter

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cardamom


Pardon the interruption

Sounds delicious! Wondering how I could adapt this recipe to make it in a regular saucepan, as I don't have a Durotherm. Thanks!

Great recipe
We have enjoyed it. Make it in Instapot. Used the instapot steel cut oatmeal recipe for cooking the oatmeal. Have added apricots after oatmeal is cooked and is resting. Watch the salt as my daughter had found it to be salty

I just joined Milk Street, one disappointment is that so few recipes I have looked at had no comments. Now I see that someone posted a comment in 2020 and it never appeared. Why?

Hi Virginia -

Each comment that is posted to our system needs to be reviewed by a real human and then gets approved and, if necessary, answered by a real human. We do our best to answer them in a timely fashion but, in some cases, we may miss one. In other cases, we get two comments that are the same so we only answer one. In this particular case, this comment never appeared in our approval system to be approved, which was a glitch in the system. Our web team is always working to improve the customer experience and is updating and evaluating our software on a regular basis. We have alerted them to this issue and, hopefully, this won't happen again.
