October 30, 1964, may not be a red-letter day in history. No rocket ship blasted off for the moon, no landmark presidential speech was made, no Internet stock went public. But human happiness was immeasurably enriched on that fateful day, when Teressa Belissimo, owner of the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, invented buffalo wings. Faced with an extra shipment of chicken wings and some unexpected guests, she had the idea to deep-fry them, then slather them with melted butter and hot sauce. The essence of buffalo Wings is the sauce—a fiery amalgam of melted butter and Tabasco (see Notes). That was the inspiration for this invigorating mop.
The obvious use for Buffalo Mop is on grilled or barbecued chicken wings-Marinate the wings in half the mop In a covered baking dish in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Use the remainder of the mop for basting, but don’t start mopping until the outside of the chicken is cooked. This mop is also great on chicken breasts and thighs, turkey, and even pork.
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the garlic and cook until fragrant but not brown, 3 minutes.
Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes.
Add the wine and vinegar and bring to a boil, whisking to dissolve the tomato paste.
Add the Tabasco sauce and remaining butter and simmer for 2 minutes.
Yield : Makes 1½ cups mop; enough for 2 pounds of meat
