Slow Carb Goulash

So for some reason I was craving goulash last week, but I also had a ton of chili left so it wasn’t until today that I had a chance to make it. Normally you’d dump it on top of potatoes or, if you wanna get mit die fancy machen, spazle, but naturally both of those are slow carb no nos so I went with turnips. To get some slow carbs, and to thicken up the broth I dumped a can of lentils into the mix near the end.
I started this in the slow cooker, but moved it to a pot at the end to reduce the sauce
