Jon's Homemade Buffalo Sauce

Homemade Buffalo Sauce - Recipe


It says in my 'About' page that I am an expert on very little in this world, but one thing I think I'm getting there with is making the perfect buffalo sauce. I've always been a big fan of wings and had been tempted to make them. Over the last month or so I've probably made about 5 batches using various little tweeks and accompaniments.

First we will start with the sauce itself, you will need;

  • 300ml hot sauce, Franks is a favourite but I've been using West Indian hot sauce
  • 1 table spoon of white wine vinegar 
  • 25g of unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcester sauce
  • Salt to taste



  • Let the butter stand until it is room temperature 
  • Once butter is room temperature put in a sauce pan on medium heat with the hot sauce 
  • Once the butter is melted and combined with the hot sauce mix in the rest of the ingredients
  • Make sure all ingredients are sufficiently mixed in
  • Leave to simmer for around 15 minutes - but do not let boil or the butter will begin to separate
  • Take off the heat and let stand

*one note - if you feel that the mix has become too vinegary which has happened to me, a teaspoon of brown sugar helps nullify it.
