The Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for this week begins with a fall-apart tender sandwich dinner of Beef Short Ribs in a tangy sauce. Sliced onions are optional.
Following that is a celebration of Cinco de Mayo featuring Carne Guisada, a spicy Mexican-inspired beef stew that can have onions, tomatoes and even potatoes in it. Like most stews, the ingredients can vary some. It’s been a favorite of mine since I first had some in San Antonio years ago.
Later this week I’ve planned three 30 minute meals, one more slow cooker meal and an oven dinner.

This gluten-free menu plan is designed for those with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or celiac (coeliac) disease, but I’ve found that people who have no food allergies like these gluten-free recipes, too. They are wheat-free, barley-free and rye-free. Many are also suitable for the paleo diet or may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free or refined sugar-free.
