    • Low Carb Hungarian Beef Goulash

      Garry has started playing with my slow cooker and made a low carb Hungarian goulash in it last night. It was really yum so I wanted to share, I just had mine with beans as Garry and Maya had gluten free pasta but you could use zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash or even make mashed cauliflower which is what I would usually do. We had enough for dinner last night, some lunch for Maya and dinner for us tonight!

    • Don't see why not, either that or the oven :)

      Garry does a poor mans bolo on the stove top that uses gravy beef, I'll ask him how long he has it on the stove for.
