Carmelized Pear Steel Oats

Let me just say that this recipe is amazing. I don't know why I don't caramelize fruit more often.

Here is what you need:
3/4 cup steel cut oats, dry
1.5 cups water
1.5 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
2 pears (peeled and chopped)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp red wine vinegar

Here is what you need to do:

  1. For the oats: Bring 1.5 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Once boiling add a pinch of salt then your oats. Swirl to coat then cover and turn heat to low. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the oats are tender.
  2. For the pears: Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Once bubbling, add brown sugar and stir. Then immediately add in pears, cinnamon, and vinegar and stir to coat. Cover the pears and cook for 10 or so minutes. Once tender, remove the lid for several more minutes then remove from heat.
  3. Divide oats between two bowls and top with equal servings of pears.
