Irish porridge is to everyday oatmeal as a cup of Starbucks is to watery, flavorless "office coffee": no comparison! If you've never tried ultra-creamy, nubbly Irish porridge, you're in for a treat.
1 cup (5 3/4 ounces) steel-cut oats
4 cups (32 ounces) water
1/2 teaspoon salt
butter, maple syrup, cream, fruit, or your toppings of choice
Combine the oats and water in a large, heavy-bottom saucepan, or in a slow cooker. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thick and creamy: about 30 minutes in a pan, or several hours in a slow cooker. Stir in the salt. Top with butter and your favorite sweetener; fruit; and to take it over the top, cream. Yield: 4 servings.
