All hail the king of sauces

Lizano sauceIt’s always a pleasure to go to a new place and discover something unique about it. Costa Rica has a lot of unique things (see here for one) but I’m interested in anything culinary and authentic.

Now as far as I know, here in London no deli nor fancy food shop sells this amazing sauce which the Ticos have every morning with their beans, rice and eggs . . . it looks like salsa verde but is a lot milder and has a warm savoury flavour with what I believe wine folks call lots of “mouth feel” . . . I had some with roast lamb the other night and it blew the traditional mint sauce out of the water. If anyone has cooked with Lizano then hit me back with a recipe.
