I loved when Alton picked up the brochure for Emerilware.

Also, the "Dub-ya" reference was priceless.

Very humorous episode, although I am not eating Haggis, no matter how many hands I have to taste the back of. :x That was the worst Scottish accent in history though.

Steel Cut

I'd never heard of steel cut oats before this episode, but now I eat them regularly. Thanks, AB, for lowering my cholesterol! :D

I loved the part in the opening when the horse licked the oats off the spoon.

I tried the oatmeal with dried papaya. The taste was good even though the fruit never softened up all the way, it was kind of chewy. It was also a bright orange! Very interesting looking. I dont think I will use papaya next time, but will definately make the recipe again. I finally got to the veggie market, .45 a pound for oats! I got a ton of cous cous too, but thats another show. :)

Help!

I'm reading the transcript and using the recipe from FoodTV, but I just can't seem to find a temp to toast the oats for the Steelcut Oatmeal recipe...suggestions?

I realize he says to saute, which to my mind means mediun heat, but I'm being anal on this one...

I loved the episode, educational and funny. :)

Is it hard to find Steelcut Oats?
I know you can find them on line, but I would rather buy in person (saves on shipping and stuff).

I've checked a few local stores and at least one larger chain, but no dice so far.

Are they in Health food stores?
Specialty shops?
Restrooms? ;)

Specialty grocers like Trader Joes and Whole Foods have them.

I can also find them in the health food section of my regular megamart.

I have seen steel cut oats at Publix. There are with all the other oatmeal. They were in a can that said something like steel sut irish oats. The company is McCanns. They also sell a quick cooking oats that are quite good and had a recipie for oatmeal pancakes that were wonderful.


I saw an episode of Tony Bourdain's (sp) show where he traveled all over the world eating. He went to Scotland and ate haggis. He talked about how how he was going to die or get sick and how bad it was going to be. But, when he ate it, he actually liked it and ate a fair amount of it.

Than being said, I still think I would have a hard time putting a bite of it in my mouth

The stuff you want is in the metal tin. It's available in many grocery stores around here. Also, I've gotten them in bulk in health food stores. Most grocery store bulk sections probably don't carry the steel cut, but they're definitely a health foodie thing.

Has anyone else tried to make the "Overnight Oatmeal"? I gave it a try, but my crockpot's idea of "low" apparently isn't low enough, and the whole thing was pretty well burnt in the morning.

I tried a few modifications, (more liquid, basically), but still had the same result. I also tried adding a 2nd round of liquids later in the process, and had a bit more luck, but it's not exactly "overnight" oatmeal if I have to get up at 4 a.m. to add to it.

Anyone with a similar situation manage to get around this prediciment?

I'm considering plugging the crockpot into an outlet hooked up to a dimmer switch, and setting the dimmer to about 3/4 of full power, but I'm not sure if that will play nicely with the crockpot. While I would like some home-cooked oatmeal, I'll take instant if it can keep my house from burning down. I'm also concerned that reducing the power might turn the oatmeal into a big petri dish.

Any insight you guys have would be appreciated.

I made have made it several times and following the recipe had no problem making it. Perhaps your crockpot needs replacing, how old is it?
My wife and I both eat a lot of oatmeal but neither of us was real happy with the flavor of the steel cut oats. :lol:

I tried the overnight oatmeal 4 times before seeing this episode. The first time I got the recipe form a different website that called for half and half, it burned and tasted terrible. I tried it again without the half and half and it still burnt, my slow cooker is also not so slow. I then tried it in my dads old brown slowcooker, similar to the one AB used and if I remember correctly it didnt cook enough, it was very watery. My wife then told me she had enough of this and to eat the instant, but one day when my wife is sleeping I will have my success and she can eat her instant oatmeal.

Of the eps I've seen so far, this is the one that I show people when I have one chance to get them hooked ... it's got everything, pretty much! Let's see, horses and nutritional anthropologist; haggis plus Braveheart-y kilts with black-rimmed glasses and *excruciating* accent (almost as bad as the French one that turns into Steve Martin's Wild & Crazy Guy somewhere in there); Barbie's Dream Oat; Three Bears ("what's that furry, oh ha ha!"); a box of oat fiber containing "cute" vitamins; the gastro-intestinal track (my friend says, "how vivid!"); cooking in bed (pulling beakers of cream and containers of dried fruit out of bed cracks me up every time!); and, finally, one of the greatest, subtle, hilarious lines I've ever heard in my life: "It doesnt' have to be perfect. Not that there's anything wrong with perfect." Oh my god, that is such a wonderful zen-ful line. If I wasn't a complete addict before this episode, this one finalized it for me. Plus it *is* aiding in my cholesterol "issues."

It didn't work for me either. It ended up being a goopy watery mess. I'm determined to get it right though, it at least smelled delicious!

I saw another recipe for "overnight oatmeal" using steel-cut oats that I'm going to try. It doesn't use a slow-cooker, it uses a rice cooker. You put the oats in the cooker with just the water the night before, but you don't turn it on, you soak them overnight. The next morning, you add the dairy, the fruit, and the sugar, and hit the button on the cooker. When it turns down to warm, it should be done. I'll try it and see how it turns out.

(A caveat...many of the recipes say that the fuzzy-logic rice cookers have "porridge" settings, but the others don't, and you need to watch them.)

I've made the steel cut oatmeal in my rice cooker, with fuzzy logic. However, I've not gone the overnight route. I load it up in the morning and it gets cooked while I do other things. I use a recipe from the Rice Cooker cookbook.

I've recently found our slow cooker and want to try the overnight cook, so there'd be no waiting in the morning ;-)

I picked up the DVD with this episode on it at TJ Max. During the "Ask Alton" segment, there is a question that goes something like, "is there a recipe for vegetarian haggis?". Alton makes like a true smart-ass and tosses the card away. Pretty funny. Wonder if it was a real question.
