Nando's Portuguese BBQ peri-peri marinade

Nando's Portuguese BBQ peri-peri marinade

At first taste it is the tomatoes and vinegar that I noticed, then the lemons and finally a little warmth from the peppery Cayenne peppers. This is a mild chilli sauce, its flavour coming mostly from the tomatoes. I did wonder why they called it a peri-peri marinade as they are well down on the list of ingredients.

We used this to cook BBQ ribs to see how well it cooked on to and marinaded into the meat, unfortunately it did not do very well, and produced a very dull set of ribs, with little stickiness and most of the flavour we had found before cooking was gone, now it was just a slightly peppery tomato sauce.

Ingredients:- Water, Tomato Paste, White Sugar, White Vinegar, Lemons, Spices (Mustard, Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Onion Powder, Black Pepper), Salt, Onions, Sunflower Oil (0.4%), Thickener (E1422), Flavour (Vegetable, Pineapple), Stabilisers (E415, E405), Colour (E150c), Artificial Flavour (Worcester Sauce), Preservative (E202), Serrano Chillies, African Birds Eye Chilli (Peri-Peri Chilli), Bay Leaves

It may have been best not to cook this sauce, but to add it to the food after cooking, so that it retains it flavour. The family generally liked the sauce direct from the bottle, with no negatives, just don’t cook with it.

If I see it at a BBQ, I would be happy to add it to my food, but it will not be on my shopping list. This sauce is available in most UK supermarkets.
