Pot-in-Pot Method for Steel Cut Oatmeal in an Instant Pot – www.instantlydelicious.com – Instantly Delicious

Today is the first day of spring break. Since we are not in a rush to head off to school, I had a bit more time to work on a cooking technique that I recently heard about.  It is called the “pot-in-pot” method and it is used for cooking grains in the Instant Pot® pressure cooker.  Instead of placing the grain (oats, rice, quinoa, etc.) directly in water in the Instant Pot®, you mix the grains with water in a bowl, place the bowl on a trivet, and then cook them that way.  Most often this method is used to cook a grain WHILE you cook something else below it in the pressure cooker.  I love this method, because it makes cleanup a breeze. If you like steel cut oats, give this method a try.
Instant Pot® Pot-in-Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal
Serves 4

1 cup steel cut oatmeal
3 3/4 cups water, divided


1. Place trivet into Instant Pot® and add 2 cups of water.

2. In a separate glass or metal bowl (that will fit into your Instant Pot®) stir together oatmeal with remaining 1 3/4 cups of water.  Place bowl on trivet.

3. Lock the lid making sure the valve is in the sealing position. Set to manual, high-pressure for 12 minutes.  When finished, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then do a quick pressure release by switching the valve to venting. Divide between four bowls and top with your favorite oatmeal toppings.

Enjoy,  Julie
