3 tablespoons white vinegar 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon paprika salt to taste 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks) --- 1 1/3 cup Frank's red hot sauce 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
The recipes vary but about all include Frank's red hot sauce. I can't easily obtain it here so I checked its ingredients:
White vinegar Cayenne Red Peppers Garlic Powder Paprika Salt, Canola Oil Natural Butter Type Flavor --- Water Xanthan Gum
Compare to the list above. Butter substituted with butter-flavored canola oil. Xanthan gum. Water.
Essentially, this looks like the buffalo sauce could be made from ~3 cups of Frank's red hot sauce and half a teaspoon of Worcestershire. Or I could just skip the bought hot sauce and double the rest of ingredients, except Worcestershire. Maybe add a bit of xanthan gum to make the sauce stick to the wings better.
Is that it? The recipe first duplicating the sauce, then adding more of the sauce on top of it for no good reason? Or did I miss something?
