These Giant Cheese Burger Potstickers are hand made in Ms. Chi Cafe’s kitchen. They use Creek Stone Farm Beef Chuck Roast, ground in house, blended with chunky diced onion and shredded cheddar cheese for the filling, and a cube of cheddar cheese in the middle to give you the woozy cheese effect. Wrapped in an orange dough that’s colored with paprika, these dumplings are served with a side of smoky-sweet and savory bacon tomato jam. They taste like a juicy drippy cheeseburger wrapped in a soft and crispy dumpling dough, with the best applewood smoked bacon and a touch of “ketchup”.
