Dinner in a Dash! The 30-Minute Meals Plan with Recipes & Shopping Lists is Here!

6 week collage

Need dinner on the table in minutes?

I want you to enjoy delicious meals in a hurry…because I know you’re in a hurry. I’m in a hurry too.

And boy does that make the dinner hour stressful.

I’ve had many afternoons when we get home from one activity, or finish a round of homework and look at the clock and there is literally 30 minutes until we have to be out the door for basketball practice, or Scouts.

That’s 30 minutes to get dinner made, on the table, eaten, and regrouped and into the van to go.

While I work hard to keep our schedule balanced and free from complete chaos, we still have these moments often and I always turn to my 20 or 30 minute meals. So much cheaper than hitting the drive thru, or calling ahead for takeout.

As we enter this busy back to school season, I want to equip you with a game plan for dinner!

I’ve pulled together 36 recipes that can all be made in 30 minutes or less. Start to finish.

  • No precooked ingredients.
  • Everything is prepared from start to table in 30 minutes.
  • No complicated recipes or cooking methods.

It’s time to take the stress and hectic feelings out from around the dinner hour. The meal plan contains 6 weeks worth of recipes and shopping list.

Each week consists of 6 meals with a shopping list for those 6 meals. That’s a total of 36 recipes with shopping lists combined by week.

Some of the meals included in this plan:

  • Spinach Lasagna Skillet Dinner
  • Potato Chip Chicken Strips
  • BBQ Chicken French Bread Pizza
  • Ham & Pea Pasta
  • Slopp-Cheesy Joe Sliders
  • Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches
  • Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatillo Salsa
  • and lots more!

Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatillo Salsa + New 31 Days of 31 Minute Dinner Series

Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

This, my friend. This meal was so so so so scrumptious.

The rice, the beans, the steak…and the spicy, fresh tomatillo salsa. The spicy part is entirely optional, so don’t let that scare you away.

Flank steak is a fantastic cut of meat – it’s inexpensive, takes on flavor well and grills up in a matter of minutes.

And tomatillos – they have such a rich and fresh flavor. If you’ve never purchased tomatillos before, they look like tiny green tomatoes and usually have their leaves still attached and wrapped around the green fruit part. You want to buy tomatillos that are uniform in pale green color, and are fairly hard. (Not soft like a ripe tomato.) Once you buy them, you’ll pull off the leaves, slice off the top and then you can use them to make your fresh, raw tomatillo salsa.

Now, make this simple and fresh dinner for a fraction of what you’d pay if you went out for TexMex!

And also…welcome to the NEW 31 Days series…this series is all about getting meals on the table in under 30 minutes…start to finish.

  • No precooked ingredients.
  • No time to waste.
  • 31-Minutes…start to finish.

You’re a busy mom or dad. You have little time to get dinner on the table. And worse, by the time dinner prep time rolls around, you are out of energy and brain space.

This month, I’m planning to teach you how to be more efficient in the kitchen and how to get a complete and balanced meal on the table in under 31 minutes.

Why 31 minutes? 

Because it matches the 31 days in the series. And because I think anyone can spare 31 minutes in their afternoon to make a home cooked meal. And because it would probably take you 31 minutes to get the car loaded, go through the drive thru and get home to eat. And because it would probably take 31 minutes for a pizza you ordered to arrive.

So, 31.

31 Minutes….ready, set, go!

P.S. Read the directions carefully, to make sure you go in order and don’t waste any time!

Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatillo Salsa

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 ½ lb. flank steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 small tomatillos, leaves removed
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and diced (omit if you don’t want it to be spicy!)
  • Leaves from 6 stems of cilantro
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

Directions

  • Start the grill and start cooking the rice. (I use my rice cooker and it takes 20 minutes, start to finish. You can absolutely make this with brown rice, but it takes 50 minutes to cook, so that’s too long for a 31-Minute Dinner!)
  • Season both sides of the flank steak with salt and pepper. When the grill is hot, add steak to the grill and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side. Cooking time will depend on thickness of the filet, heat of the grill and how done you prefer your steak.
  • While the steak is grilling and the rice is cooking, add the tomatillos, jalapeno, cilantro leaves, salt and pepper to a small food processor and puree into fresh tomatillo salsa.
  • Drain the black beans and slice the cooked steak. Note: If you prefer (and have time), you can warm the beans. I just served them room temp with the warm rice.
  • Serve Grilled Flank Steak with Tomatillo Salsa on top with side of rice and black beans.

Grilled Fish Tacos & Slaw ~ NEW 31 Days of Grilling Recipes

Grilled Fish Tacos with Slaw Recipe

Now this is how to enjoy a fish taco.

The lemon juice soaks into the fish before it is grilled. Then the smoky flavor from the grill infuses into the fish with the lemon. Then you warm the corn tortillas on the grill. Then you make the tacos and load each one with a fresh coleslaw with a hint of dill. And if you’re feeling crazy, you can toss on a little shredded mozzarella cheese at the end for a little cheesy punch.

Divine. Simple and divine. Here’s the recipe…

Grilled Fish Tacos & Slaw

Yield – 4 servings, 3 tacos each

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • about 1 1/4 lb. white fish, like cod or tilapia
  • 2 lemons, juiced, divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 10 oz. bag coleslaw mix
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese, optional garnish
  • Fresh fruit, as side dish

Directions

  • Place the fish filet(s) in a shallow dish and squeeze the juice from 1 lemon over the fish. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Grill the fish until cooked through, about 6 minutes on each side. Grilling time may vary depending on thickness of the fish filets and heat of the grill. If desired, grill the corn tortillas for about a minute each to warm them up and give them some grill marks.
  • While the fish is grilling, mix up the coleslaw in a large mixing bowl. Add the coleslaw mix to the bowl.
  • In a small resealable container, add the olive oil, vinegar and juice from 1 lemon with the dill and a little salt and pepper. Shake vigorously and then pour over the coleslaw mix and toss well. Give it a taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Once the fish is cooked, slice it into pieces that will fit into the taco. Add a few bites of fish to each corn tortilla and top with coleslaw.
  • Serve Grilled Fish Tacos with Coleslaw, optional mozzarella cheese garnish, and some fresh fruit.
