Khinkali are Georgian soup dumplings that bear a resemblance to Chinese xiaolongbao. Khinkali are typically filled with beef, or a mix of beef and pork, but can also have other fillings such as lamb, mushrooms, or potato. They’re eaten by holding the “handle” that’s formed with the dough while sealing off the filling, with a bit of black pepper on top. Not spilling the precious, flavorful broth is the key to success, as is sharing with guests, friends, and family. If you’re looking for a way to use ground venison other than burgers, jerky, or pasta sauce, these Venison Khinkali are great option. I recommend making khinkali in two sittings: on the first day, mix the meat, onion, and other ingredients and let them comingle; on the second, make fresh dough and fold them up.
