Beef Gyros With Seasoned Oven Fries. Music From Meiko.

Just to wake you up, how about these pillows to make one’s nap more exciting?

I saw that image over at today’s musical guest Meiko’s website. Her music and more after the recipe.

I LOVED this dinner.

Gyros always make me think of Seinfeld which always makes me smile.

You won’t have to rush out of the Subway to get these fantastic Gyros. Easy as pie to make at home.

The Oven Fries are the easiest ever and deeeee-licious. The perfect side.

Beef Gyros


1 cup ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup chopped, seeded, peeled cucumber
1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 whole pita breads, warmed
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
2-1/2 cups shredded lettuce


1. In a small bowl, combine salad dressing and cucumber; set aside.

2. In a large skillet, cook beef in oil over medium heat until no longer pink.

3. Layer half of each pita with steak, tomato, olives, onion, cheese, lettuce and dressing mixture. Fold each pita over filling.

Seasoned Oven Baked Fries


6 medium baking potatoes
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (I used sea salt and a sprinkling of Italian herbs)


1. Cut each potato lengthwise into thirds; cut each portion into thirds. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the butter, oil and seasoned salt. Add potatoes; shake to coat.

2. Place potatoes in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 450°F for 10-12 minutes on each side or until tender.

Meiko is my musician of choice today.

Anyone who describes themselves as “Singer, Songwriter, Shit Talker, Lover, Fighter, Over User of The Word “Balls” is ace in my book. Bonus is that she’s got a recipe up on her Website. Turkey Balls. Mmmm…gobble gobble.

On to the music.

This video is for a song from the new album coming out on May 15th. Very cool….all those records….and I want her boots.

How Lucky We Are is from 2008. Slower and shows what an inviting voice Meiko has. One of my stand by favorites.
Meiko-How Lucky We Are

Check out Meiko on her Website, where you can also buy the music. Spend some time looking around. Meiko’s posts are pretty funny and then there is that Turkey Balls recipe to think about.
