Steel Cut Oatmeal

(Cooked in a 3 cup Zojirushi Rice Cooker)

NOTE: This recipe CANNOT be made in the Pressure IH Rice Cooker (NP-HTC10/18, NP-NVC10/18 model)

Ingredients (serves 2-3):

  • 1 cup* steel cut oats
  • Water to fill to water level 1 for steel cut oatmeal or 2-1/2 cups* water
  • 1 cup* half & half
  • 3-4 Tbsp. brown sugar

*Please use the rice measuring cup that came with your rice cooker.


Place steel cut oats and water in the inner cooking pan.


Place the inner cooking pan in the main body of the rice cooker and plug in the unit. Cook the oatmeal using the "Steel Cut Oatmeal" setting. For models that do not have a "Steel Cut Oatmeal" setting, cook using the “Porridge” setting.


When the rice cooker turns to Keep Warm, open the lid, stir and add the remaining ingredients.


Serve warm.


Using the Timer function and soaking the oats overnight will help soften the texture. Please do not use the Timer function when cooking with milk or other dairy products, as they may spoil.

If your rice cooker does not have a porridge setting, please watch the rice cooker while it cooks, as it may overflow.
