Place the meat in a mixing bowl. Heat the oil in a small cast-iron

and let cool.

Add the cooled onion mixture, chili powder, cumin, ground pepper, red

Divide the mixture into 4 patties of equal size.

Heat a heavy cast-iron skillet large enough to hold all the patties in one
layer. Do not add fat of any kind. When the skillet is quite hot and
smoking, add the patties. Cook until well browned on one side, then turn
and cook 3 minutes more on the second side for medium rare. Cook longer if
desired. Transfer to a warm plate.
