Piri-piri sauce—also spelled peri-peri—is made from a type of bird’s eye chili that’s grown in Africa. The spicy condiment, used as both a marinade for meats and poultry and a basting sauce during cooking, is catching on with American chefs looking for a new source of heat. At Sugarcane, Chef Balloo marinates beef steak in piri-piri, adding sweet, tart and herbal ingredients to round out the flavor.
