Meatless Gluten-Free Meals
I love a quick meatless meal any night of the week.
While I am not a vegetarian, I really do prefer meatless meals myself. And by adding a few meatless meals to the week, you can cut back on your grocery spending along with doing something good for your health.
These quick meatless gluten-free meals are on the table in less than 30 minutes, making them easy weeknight options.

Gluten-Free Meals with Beef
Ground beef is a busy weeknight's dream come true when it comes to a quick meal. Ground beef cooks up in a short amount of time and can become the base of so many easy meals.
One of my favorite things to do with this recipe for Sloppy Joes and Taco Meat is to serve it up in lettuce wraps, baked sweet potatoes, or baked potatoes for a perfect gluten-free meal. And when I bake the potatoes in my Instant Pot, my dinner is still done starting to finish in 30 minutes.
Note: If you forget to thaw out your hamburger meat (I am guilty of this many times!!), check out my method for perfectly cooking frozen meat.
Homemade Sloppy Joes: This recipe for Homemade Sloppy Joes is sweet, and savory, with a hint of spice from the fresh jalapeno, creating the perfect balance of savory flavors. These are SO much better than any Sloppy Joe made with canned sauce.

Gluten-Free Meals with Pork
Pork is one meat I absolutely adore! I personally feel it has incredible flavor and is still lean and of course a great source of protein.
I tend to cook with a lot of pork loin which lends itself to slow-cooked meals like pork carnitas or apple pork roast. BUT pork chops or pork tenderloin are both great options for quick-cooking, gluten-free 30 minutes meals.
Instant Pot Pork Chops: These Instant Pot Pork Chops are made with rich, gluten-free mushroom gravy for a comforting dish! Serve with a side of mashed potatoes or rice to keep this meal gluten-free.
Skillet Pork Tenderloin: The flavors in this one-pot gluten-free meal are incredible! The pork tenderloin becomes tender and the cabbage is perfectly braised in a sweet and savory liquid.
Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin: Sweet potatoes, apples, and pork all cook together for a simple gluten-free meal packed with incredible flavor.
Gluten-Free Meals with Chicken
Chicken is probably the first protein people associate with easy 30-minute meals.
Chicken breast is so lean it cooks up in a matter of minutes. But also leftover rotisserie chicken is a quick 30-minute meal go-to--and when you start with a homemade rotisserie chicken, you can assure that your meal is gluten-free as well.
Barbecue Chicken Salad: This is one of my family's all-time favorites! This recipe is based on a popular restaurant's BBQ Chicken Salad--just this version leaves out the gluten!
Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken: I make a huge batch of this buffalo chicken for meal prep! It isis great served alone or used for tacos, pizza, or sandwiches.
Chicken Asparagus Stir Fry: While the recipe calls for asparagus, use any vegetable your family likes in this simple chicken stir fry.
Easy Orange Chicken: This Orange chicken is just the recipe you need to brighten up your day! Bright and fresh, and made in one pan--this orange chicken is simple, delicious, and picky eater-approved. Alternatively, you can prepare Instant Pot Orange Chicken for a delicious, hands-off 30-minute meal.
Honey Lemon Chicken Skillet: The ingredients are simple. The work is minimal. The results are incredible. Honey Lemon Chicken is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken breasts on busy nights.
