Recipe: Buffalo-Style Pork Ribs

Are you game for a change? I’m quite certain that you have heard of or tried Buffalo Wings before, but have you ever heard of or tried Buffalo Pork Ribs? Initially, when I made my Buffalo Ribs, I was sceptical about the outcome but was so delighted that it turned out tasty and flavourful.

In our opinion, it’s even better than the wing’s version.

The ribs were slightly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.  They tasted superb with the blue cheese dip and hot sauce. Yes, blue cheese; you might say, ‘Eeee”. I said that too when I first made it, but this sauce with the ribs was like a perfect match!

If you are thinking of something different this festive season, how about trying out this recipe to appease the taste buds of those who are adventurous and wants a real kick (you can level up the spiciness by adding more hot sauce) to start the new year!!

Serves 4 persons


1 slab of pork ribs

2 – 3 tablespoons baking powder

1 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika

½ tablespoon Cumin


Hot Sauce:

70g unsalted butter, melted

½ to ¾ cup Sriracha sauce or any Hot Sauce of your choice

1½ tablespoons brown sugar

¼ teaspoon salt


Blue Cheese Dip

70g blue cheese, softened

120g sour cream

60g mayonnaise

2 cloves small garlic, minced

2 tablespoons milk

Juice of half a lemon or 2 to 3 tablespoon of lemon juice

Pinches of salt

Some black pepper


Preheat oven to 180°C

  1. Salt the Ribs and leave it for 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse off the salt, then pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Combine the baking powder, smoked paprika, cumin and the salt.
  4. Rub the mixture on the ribs evenly.
  5. Line the baking tray with foil.
  6. Place the Ribs on the rack. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Turn up the oven to 220°C and bake for another 50 to 60 minutes or till crispy and cooked through.

While the ribs are baking make the sauce and dip:

Preparation for the sauce:

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together. Keep warm or reheat just prior to using.

Preparation for the blue cheese dip:

  1. Mash the blue cheese with sour cream until smooth.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and 1 tablespoons of milk to combine well. Add in more milk to get it to the consistency you want.
  3. Store in the fridge until required. Remove from the fridge 10 minutes before serving.

Serving the Ribs:

  1. Once the rack of ribs is cooked, let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  2. You can pour the hot sauce over the ribs and serve immediately with the cheese dip at the side, or like me, you can let each individual scoop the amount of sauce and dip to their liking.

Happy Cooking!

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds good and will give it a try. Just to clarify.. bake 30 mins at 180c.. then crank to 220c and bake for another 50-60 mins?

    I would like to try this recipe; I do not know what nowhere can I get sriracha? What’s hot sauce ? Tks

    1. Hi Pei Fang, the hot sauce is made out of the Sriracha. You might be able to find a bottle of Sriracha at a convenience store near you. 🙂
