For Bergy, hope this is the right piri-piri spice mix. Found this in B H & G and will try it this weekend. Looks wonderful in the picture and sounds great. It will be interesting to see how it works. Will comment after I try it and let you all know.

well I didn't get around to buying the beef I wanted to try this on but did try the spice mix on chicken, it was great! I would say medium heat, if you like it hot hot add more cayenne. We skewered the skinless boneless chicken and brushed olive oil over and liberally sprinkled the piri-piri spice mix over both sides and DH bbq'd them.We loved them; served with bbq'd tomatoes, stuffed with asparagus, onion and wild rice mix. Very enjoyable meal, I will use the spice mix on a lot of different things.
