Heat the butter in a large pan or frying pan; it should be hot but not burning. Add the finely sliced onions and cook until they are melting and soft and just about to start turning brown.
Add the potatoes to the pan with the onions and stir thoroughly, if there isn’t enough butter to coat them, add a little more. Cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add the beef stock, bring to a gentle boil, reduce the heat and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Add the corned beef cubes, the Worcestershire sauce, mustard and cook for 20 minutes stirring with a spoon from time to time. From now on, take care not to over stir the hash or both the corned beef and potatoes will break up, try to keep them as intact as possible during the cooking.
Once ready keep the hash over low heat, add the frozen peas and cooked carrots and stir through.
When the corned beef hash is cooked, remove the pan from the heat, sprinkle over the Worcestershire sauce and parsley and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
