Costco now carries the Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats in the store. We’ve been purchasing the Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats from Costco for years now.
We’ve heard good things about Steel Cut Oats but have never tried it because it takes longer to cook. I guess this must be one of the main reasons most people don’t try steel cut oats because they’ve now come up with a quick-cooking one.
Looking through the cooking instructions, it seems you can cook the quick-cooking steel cut oats the same way you would cook the old-fashioned rolled oats.
Add a 1:2 ratio of oats to water or milk, then add a pinch of salt if desired and microwave for about 3 minutes.
One thing I do find interesting is that one serving of traditional oats is 1/2 cup while one serving of the steel cut oats is 1/4 cup. And they both provide the same amounts of fiber (4 g) .

– Certified Organic
– Cholesterol Free.
They are available in a 112 oz bag and is priced at $7.99.
Unit price is 7.1 cents/oz.
Item number is 731962.

Inventory and pricing at your store may/will vary.
We’ll be buying this to try once we finish our current supply of the Quaker Oats.
UPDATE 09/13: We’ve finally finished our Quaker Oats and bought a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats. Below is what it looks like. I should have kept some of the regular oats to compare them. Anyway, we’ve been cooking them in the microwave just like the regular oats. For a 1/4 cup, 2.5 minutes appear to be sufficient.
