DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Set aside half the onion for topping; finely chop the other half.
  • Preheat grill to medium.
  • Place the chopped onion in a large bowl; add pork, olives, garlic, paprika, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
  • Gently combine, without overmixing, until evenly incorporated; form into 4 equal patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Combine mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice and saffron in a small bowl.
  • Oil the grill rack.
  • Grill the burgers, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, 10 to 12 minutes total.
  • Top with cheese and cook until it is melted, about 1 minute more.
  • Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with the lemon-saffron mayonnaise, some of the reserved onions and a half a Piquillo (or pimiento) pepper.
