Form the ground beef into 4 thin patties. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the patties but do not crowd the pan, season with salt and pepper. Cook for a minute or two just until a seared color starts to form.

Pour about a half inch of water into the pan and cover with a tight lid. Cook for a few minutes until your desired doneness.

Top with cheese for the last 30 seconds to melt. Top with onion, serve on a roll or toasted bread.
