Slow cooker corned beef hash

The ultimate comfort food. This recipe for a slow cooker corned beef hash can be cobbled together in the morning left all day and then when you return home in the evening you will be greeted by a warm and delicious hug. It's dead easy to make too 🙂 This recipe is great for using up food in the fridge, feel free to experiment. If you have any other meat that needs using you can stick that in as well. To make a vegetarian version the corned beef can be replaced with Quorn mince and replace the beef stock cubes with veg stock cubes. Check out our guide to choosing the best slow cooker.
