What is buffalo sauce?
Buffalo sauce is a slightly spicy sauce originated in Buffalo, New York, in 1964. Homemade buffalo sauce is very easy to make, it goes almost on everything and can be adjusted to anyone’s taste. Its rich buttery flavor will conquer even those people who generally do not like hot sauces.
What is Keto Buffalo Sauce made of?
Keto Buffalo Sauce made of simple ingredients that I usually have on hand in my fridge or pantry.
Butter – one of my favorite ingredients. Better grab unsalted butter as almost all ingredients contain salt. So you can easily regulate the amount of it. Did you know that most commercial buffalo sauces are usually made with vegetable oil? That’s why homemade buffalo sauces that are made with butter tastes so good!
Hot sauce – choose the one you desire. Sometimes, when I am preparing buffalo sauce for my kids I substitute it with regular tomato sauce. And you know it doesn’t taste worst.
Rice vinegar – also it is up to your taste which one you will add. White vinegar or wine vinegar will not spoil the taste.
Worcestershire sauce – this is real trouvaille, now I can add it everywhere.
Honey – this is optional ingredients, as it is not generally suitable for a keto diet. But for regular buffalo sauce, it will enrich the flavor and balance the spiciness.
Garlic – if you are preparing a big batch of sauce, then I will advise you to use garlic powder. So you can store the sauce longer. Also if you are on a strict keto diet it is more convenient, as garlic powder contains fewer carbs per gram then fresh once. Anyway, fresh minced garlic is much more flavorful and aromatic.
Cayenne pepper or chili flakes.
