Mickey’s Corned Beef and Cabbage with Mustard Horseradish Sauce
1 (5-6lb.) corned beef with pickling spices ½ tsp. salt and pepper
1 (12 oz.) can of beer 6-8 medium potatoes
10 peppercorns 2-3 medium onions
1 bay leaf 6-8 medium carrots
Mustard Horseradish Sauce
¼ C. prepared horseradish 1 tsp. honey ¼ C. mayonnaise
¼ tsp. black pepper 1 ½ T. Dijon mustard (or ½ tsp dry)
½ C. whipping cream
Place corned beef and pickling spices in a deep electric frying pan or a Crock Pot. Add beer, peppercorns, bay lead, and water to cover. Cook 4-5 hours over very low heat. If using a pot simmer 3 hours. Check occasionally to make sure water still covers meat. Prepare vegetables during last hour of cooking. Scrub and halve potatoes. Rinse cabbage and remove tough outer leaves. Core and cut in quarters. Peel onion and quarter. Trim and peel carrots and cut in large chunks. Add to corned beef. Cook 20 minutes and check vegetables. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl when they are just done (the carrots even a bit crunchy if you like). Toss with salt and pepper. Check corned beef for tenderness (a knife and fork would slide into it easily).When done, remove from water and drain well in colander. Place corned beef on cutting board and cut across the grain into ½ inch slices. Arrange on platter and surround with vegetables. To make mustard horseradish sauce: combine all ingredients except cream in a medium bowl. Whip cream until it forms soft peaks and folds into mixture. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

NBC sucks except for The Office.
I can't remember exactly where it was but I think it was at the Olympics this year but anyway the people accidentally played the fictional Kazakhstan anthem from the Borat movie instead of the real one.
