Utter fail. 5 minutes covered in the microwave equaled 90% of it spilling over the rim of the huge bowl I had it in. I must have a mighty-powerful microwave. You might want to try fewer minutes at first, and watch it closely!
Good recipe; but add a dash of salt. Also VERY important to use the right size bowl. I cooked covered for 4 mins on full power, then cooked 6 mins on 50% powder at 2mins at a time, stirring in between ea 2mins. Then cooked for another 6 mins at 60% power at 2mins at a time, stirring in between ea 2min. TOTALLY worth the effort - came out perfect consistency and good quantity for 2 people.
This was my first time cooking steel cut oats. I want to try it in the crockpot but this fit the bill for an unexpected batch for breakfast. I cooked covered for 5 minutes and uncovered for 12 minutes and it was probably firmer than it should have been but we both like it that way. Thanks!
