We’re big fans of the Instant Pot, and how it turns what was once a lengthy and time-consuming cooking project into a fast and simple (yes, almost instant) process!
Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats with Strawberry Brown Sugar is genuinely one of the quickest and easiest things you can make.
What are Steel Cut Oats?
The main difference between steel cut oats and quick oats lies in the processing. Steel cut oats are oat groats (an oat kernel without the husk) that have been cut into two or three pieces by a steel blade.
Are Steel Cut Oats High In Fiber?
Steel cut oats are good source of fiber. 1/4-cup of uncooked steel cut oats contains 2 grams of soluble fiber and provides 15-percent of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's recommended daily allowance.
The Benefit of Making Steel Cut Oats in the Instant Pot
Cooking steel cut oats on the stovetop requires 30-40 minutes of hands-on time. Compare that to the Instant Pot, which needs only 4 minutes of cooking time (plus approximately 10 minutes for the pressure to build). And, all you need to do is put the ingredients in the pot, set it, and walk away!
Top your Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats with the classic flavor combination of strawberries and brown sugar to make even the busiest weekday morning feel like a relaxing Sunday brunch.

How to Make Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats with Strawberry Brown Sugar Step-by Step
Step #1: Add vanilla almond milk, steel cut oats, and honey to your Instant Pot inner pot.
Step #2: Set manual pressure to 4 minutes. Make sure the release valve on lid is closed (not set to vent).
Step #3: After cooking time has elapsed, do a quick release, stir, and dish up into bowls.
Step #4: Top with sliced strawberries and brown sugar (or the toppings of your choice), and enjoy!
- 4 cups vanilla almond milk
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- ¼ cup honey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- Add first 3 ingredients to Instant Pot inner pot.
- Set manual pressure to 4 minutes.
- After pressure cooking time has elapsed, do a quick release, stir and dish up into bowls.
- Top with choice of toppings and enjoy!
To prevent oatmeal from sticking to the inner pot, the pot-in-pot method can be used. To do this, add 1 1/2 cups of water to the inner pot, set a trivet in the inner pot, and mix the ingredients together in a casserole or pot that fits inside the inner pot. Lower the pot/casserole dish into the Instant Pot using a sling.
