Steel cut oats in under 10 minutes!

Cooking steel cut oats can take more than half an hour and who has the time? Not getting into the nutritional aspects of the different oats, (rolled, quick and steel cut) I like the nutty flavor and moreover the kids had been eating overcooked rolled and quick oats for some time already. I started adding oats to their dinner because of the high satiety value, hoping they will sleep through the night and not wakeup because of hunger.

Trader Joe's Quick Cook Steel Cut Oaks have the nutty flavor and do cook in under 10 minutes. The cooking instructions have microwave directions but I have not tried it. The kids did not seem to be bothered by the chewier texture which I was concerned about.
