Food Snob

There’s a shockingly low amount of recipes floating around the internet for homemade buffalo sauce – that’s what I discovered at a cursory glance that lasted about 10 minutes. Having worked in the restaurant industry for 10 plus years, I had an idea of what goes into the making of a traditional buffalo sauce: butter and hot sauce. Traditional is what I was looking for. But then I found this recipe, a non-traditional buffalo wing sauce recipe, at My recipe is an adaptation.


  • 1 c. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 stick of butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 T. light brown sugar, heaping
  • 1 T. Worcestershire Sauce.


  1. Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until you reach a slight rolling boil. Do not let the sauce scorch.
  3. Once you reach a slight rolling boil, allow the sauce to cook for about two more minutes or until the sauce color darkens. Remove from heat.
  4. Let stand, covered, for about 30 minutes. Toss with your favorite wings or drumsticks.

This sauce is very garlicky and a little spicy. It’s mild enough that you don’t need a creamy sauce to tame the spiciness. Also the flavor is good enough to stand alone. The original recipe calls for 1/8 to 1/4 cup of brown sugar but I don’t like sweet wing sauce so putting more than one tablespoon of brown sugar in the sauce made me nervous. I can’t say I even tasted the brown sugar at all.
