    Bob, I think you are talking about Salsa Lizano...There was a Costa Rican restaurant on an episode of DDD, Latin Street Food, that uses Salsa Lizano in several dishes...I have not tried it but it's supposed to taste like a cross between Worcestershire and Italian Dressing...I looked in to making it and can not find a Recipe!...JJ

    If you mean Lizano sauce/salsa[font=verdana, sans-serif]  [/font]

    O Boy O Boy it is a great sauce it is sweet and slightly hot gives a great deep flavor i love it on my chicken or on ribs

    but for the last 2 years i cant find it in south Africa  and did not find it in Vegas .

    it is an addictive flavor.

    Went to see my local hispanics and was greeted by ",Gringo Bob " when i walked in the door.

     all i had to say was lizano and they went and got me a bottle.

    750ml for $4.50 . It has a great flavor and i can't wait to try it on some meat.

    Hey Bob 

    Can you post a pic of the bottle so I can do a search for it out here on the West Coast

    I have to try this.  I doubt it will be hard to find in CA. Also, lots of places to buy it on the net.

    Have not found a recipe to make it from scratch.  Did see a recommended substitute of 1 part Worsty to 1 part picante.  I doubt that would be a very close substitute, but I have no idea.

    Thanks for the idea for something new to try!

    Good luck and good smoking.
