How to make Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats

To make Steel Cut Oats in an Instant Pot:

Pout the water in your Instant Pot and add in the steel-cut oats and almond milk. Set the IP to high and the cooking time to 4 minutes. Allow the pressure to build. Once it hit the 4-minute mark, do a natural release of pressure for approximately 10 minutes, then release the remaining pressure before removing the lid. Quickly stir and serve. Enjoy!
