The Frugal Gourmet -P2- Classic Beef Dishes – Jeff Smith HD Cooking

The Frugal Gourmet, aired by WTTW Chicago, was one of many cooking shows that I watched in the mid 80’s. I recall thinking that Jeff Smith was pretty hilarious when I was a kid. Check out this classic clip.

  1. Check out this video on YouTube: I used to watch this show as a teenager and young adult. Great show with great tips. Go back and watch part 1 as well.

  2. Stephanie Balchan

    love this guy.

  3. In the smoking meat world, we use either sausage or Ground Beef as the outer meat with a million variations of what could be inside. But this rolled up, stuffed steak Jeff does here could be used also.

  4. Dabney Fountain

    Jeff Smith..a man ahead of his time. Such a broad range of knowledge; an evident insatiable curiosity…a renaissance man and a genius.

  5. I think his restaurant is still open, The Chaplain's Pantry, not too sure though.

  6. I loved this show and Yan Can Cook.

  7. "At least, I hope heaven smells like this. If it smells like something else, I don't know, I don't know if I want to get involved." LOL. And this from a student of theology. 😉

  8. My grandmother and I used to watch them, too; they must have had a soft spot for him. :-)

  9. Everyone is an expert on hygiene these days. I bet you're picking your nose right now. :)

  10. that apron is probably soooo contaminated it's not funny

  11. Thanx so much for uploading these awsome videos me and my grandmother use to watch him when I was a kid love peace and manny blessings to you.

  12. I miss simple cooking like this. Complex does not equal better.

  13. Apparently Jeff isn't concerned about getting worms after eating raw beef!

  14. He was preaching the values of decreasing our intake of salt and animal fats 20 years before it was fashionable to do so.
