Searching for gluten-free meals can be quite overwhelming, especially if the topic is new to you. This post is a resource for you to find gluten-free pork options (or easily made gluten-free), that use a multi-function pressure cooker, such as Instant Pot or GoWise (and some even have slow-cooker options).

Whether you are looking for a use for pork ribs, pork shoulder, bacon, ham or sausage, you can find inspiration here.

Important Note

If you are cooking for another individual that requires gluten-free, please discuss the extent of their sensitivity to make sure you fully understand their condition (some people with Celiac disease cannot tolerate cross-contamination). I will update this page with a link (once available) to a practical resource page, written by someone with decades of knowledge on the topic.


Gluten-Free in the Instant Pot

Instant Pots, and other similar electric multi-function pressure cookers, have an amazing way of making gluten-free so easy. This is one kitchen devices that gets used regularly in my house. I’ve become so infatuated with these devices that I now have three of them: One 12 quart GoWise and two Instant Pots (one 6 quart and one 8 quart). You can find a full list of recipes that use these amazing devices at KFO Electric Pressure Cooker/Multi-function Cooker Obsession and Recipes page.

Today, I wanted to showcase 19 recipes that use the Instant Pot (or other electric pressure cookers) to cook gluten-free pork recipes, and give you some options.

There is a link provided to each recipe, so that you can go directly to the gluten-free pork recipe that you want to try.
