In a big, heavy skillet, brown and crumble the beef over medium-high heat.

Pour off the fat and transfer the beef to a slow cooker.

Add the oil to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low.

Add the onion, garlic, and celery and saute until they're just softened.

Add the broth, bouillon, salt or Vege-Sal, pepper, oregano, dry mustard, and tomato paste and stir.

Now add the cream cheese, using the edge of a spatula to cut the cream cheese into chunks.

Let this mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cream cheese is melted.

Meanwhile, add the turnips to the slow cooker.

When the cream cheese has melted into the sauce, pour the sauce into the slow cooker.

Stir until the ground beef and turnips are coated.

Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 6 hours.

Serve with cheddar cheese on top.
