Form ground beef into 2 patties, each ¾" thick and seasoned liberally with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a medium pan over high heat. When oil reaches its smoke point, add burger patties and cook 4-5 minutes, or until well browned, on first side. Flip and cook 3-4 more minutes to desired doneness, or internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. During last minute of cooking, top with cheese to allow it to melt slightly.
