Ray...Ray...Ray...what a surprise of a sauce! I honestly was skeptical of a sauce made with evaporated milk and jalapenos, but my gosh, this was good. Do people still use the word "scarf" as in "he scarfed" or "she scarfed" it down? Well, we ALL "scarfed" this one down.

What a delicious recipe! I was looking for something to use up the jalapenos I had in my fridge, and this was the perfect dish!
I didn't have evaporated milk so I used double the amount (1/2 cup) of regular milk. I had to cook it a bit longer for it to thicken but the taste was still lovely. I also added one clove of garlic to and a dash of cumin to the sauce while it cooked. I bet it would be yummy with shrimp too!

Very tasty and came together quickly when the steak was pan-fried. I think that a little bit of garlic and maybe sun-dried tomatoes would be delicious, though, perhaps, not necessarily very 'Costa Rican'!

This steak was really good. We enjoyed the spice and the fact that it was different. I followed the directions exactly, except that I used Ribeye steaks instead of T-bones. I served this with "Perfect Rice Everytime" by Mean Chef.

The sauce makes the steak....anyone can have a plain steak, but the sauce really makes this steak. We used sirloin. We served Tumeric Rice (Turmeric Rice) and broccoli as sides. Delicious!! My husband is very in tune with what he puts in his body and he loved this meal!!

Oh boy is this good, I used approx 600 grams of rump steak as I was feeding 3 people and added 1/3 cup of evaporated milk instead of the stated 1/4 cup. And boy did we all do step 8! Thanks for posting.
