This Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats recipe works in any Electric Pressure Cooker, it's perfect Fall food and an easy make ahead recipe that can be reheated the next day
Add the steel cut oats (we used gluten free) pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, salt, brown sugar, and water to your electric pressure cooker and stir well.
Lock the lid, turn the steam vent to 'sealing' and using the manual setting, adjust it to cook for 10 minutes at High Pressure. (please read recipe notes on cook time first)
When the cook time time is up, allow the unit to reduce pressure on its own without opening the steam release vent (Natural Release or 'NPR') for at least 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes you can carefully and slowly release the rest of the pressure.
When you open the lid you will see that the cooked oats are on the bottom of the pot and the water has separated and is on the top. This is normal, all you need to do is stir the oatmeal until the water is mixed in.
Taste and add more sugar as desired. Optional toppings include half and half and chopped nuts
Cook Time - if you like chewy slightly crunchy oats, you can cook them for 5 minutes with a 10 minute natural pressure release. If you like them soft but with a little bit of texture (as shown in the video and photos) use the 10 minute cook time as listed in the recipe. And if you want them really, really, soft then try cooking for 15 minutes, with a 10 minute natural pressure release. You may need to experiment a little bit to find the perfect cook time for the texture you prefer.
Rolled Oats - I have not tested this recipe with rolled oats so I can't say for sure how long they will take, but I would use the same method listed in the recipe and cook them for no more than 3-5 minutes, with a natural release as described. I think they will not need as much water as steel cut oats, so I would try 2-2.5 cups of water instead of 3.
Quick Cook Oats - Do not use them, they are not suitable for pressure cooking.
