Cooking Steel Cut Oats in the microwave

We're on a health kick. Part of the healthy eating plan has been to ditch the processed food and swap out some items we were eating with more nutritious or healthy options. In that regard, we have started eating Steel Cut Oats for breakfast lately instead of Old Fashioned Oatmeal.

While the package of oats that I bought only has instructions for stovetop cooking (seriously, 25 minutes for oatmeal?) I have very little patience and wanted microwave instructions. Off googling I went, and found these instructions on Amazon.

Microwaving Steel Cut Oats
(2 servings)
In large bowl, combine 1/2 cup Steel Cut Oats and 1 1/2 cups water.
Cover and microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes.
(I like to make the oats the night before and reheat in the morning: the oats aren't so soupy)
