Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

This is my Spaghetti Sauce Recipe. It is based on my mom’s “Amazing Gravy” recipe. She grew up in Philly and her home was right outside of little Italy so she must have learned how to cook from there. This Spaghetti Sauce Recipe smells so good I have thought about bottling the smell and selling it.

I went to sam’s club and bought all of the items above with exception of the basil. I used all of it. I made two huge pots of my Easy Spaghetti Sauce Recipe because I put it in ziplock bags and I freeze it to be used later. I also add some oregano by sight and 2 cloves of fresh garlic one for each pot. And since my husband can’t eat food with gluten, I decided to also make a pressure cooker version.

The secret to the my Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe is the order in which I do things and the quality of the ingredients. I find that is important to buy in bulk and cook ahead to save time and money. I use this sauce for tons of recipes.

Here’s my Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

How Long Do You Cook Turkey Breast in a Pressure Cooker

How Long Do You Cook Turkey Breast in A Pressure Cooker

I am cheap. I admit it. I am a hoarder of turkey, ham, and chicken. When I see it on sale I buy it. I can’t help it. I just love to cook big meals for my family it makes me feel great but I hate to pay retail. That brings me to my turkey breast story. I figured out in November you can get Turkey for a lot less. The day after Thanksgiving they mark them down even further. The breasts are so easy to find. What I didn’t know is can you cook a turkey breast in a pressure cooker?

I figured you could since I can cook a whole chicken soup in a pressure cooker. What I wasn’t sure of was how long would it take. I did, however, find out because I needed to make dinner. I intended to cook the turkey breast the normal way in the oven. The problem was my 8 pound Turkey breast was going to take 3.5 hours in the oven. I didn’t have time for that so I decided to try the pressure cooker. I was pleased with my pressure cooker turkey breast recipe. I will tell you the skin doesn’t get crispy like it does in the oven. I was so pressed for time I didn’t throw mine in the oven but I could have on broil for 10-15 minute to crisp it up.

How long does a frozen turkey breast take to cook in a pressure cooker?

This is how long you cook a turkey breast in the pressure cooker. I cooked an 8 lb turkey breast for 50 minutes in my pressure cooker.

Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Chicken Recipe

I am the queen of the dump meal. I find that I am so crazy busy I often forget about making dinner until someone complains. I love this meal because it used pantry staples to create something that resembles a well thought out balanced meal. I pretend like it was planned, but it is the meal I fall back on when I need something quick that my kids like and that I know I will eat the next day over a baked potato for lunch. This Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Chicken Recipe will become one you love and let me tell you it is easy.

Are you on a gluten free diet? Prepare a delicious gluten free meal for the family. I have a gluten free pressure cooker chicken recipe that's easy and so tasty, check out my Gluten Free Instant Pot Chicken Pineapple Taco Recipe

The Gluten Free Instant Pot Chicken Pineapple Taco is an easy meal, and you can control how spicy you make it based on the salsa you select and the taco toppings. I have tried several flavors of salsa, and my family loves when I add mango salsa and my husband loves when I do a spicy variety. I swear he has burned off his taste buds because he likes things hot but the rest of the family doesn’t so I often add a Tablespoon of the hot stuff to top his off and use the medium or the mild in the pressure cooker taco recipe below.

I should also note that you can use pork instead of chicken but the cooking times will be different since pork takes longer to cook than chicken does. We all like an easy pressure cooker chicken recipes so let me share this one.
