Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 1/4 pounds ground beef, broken into pieces 

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 

2 to 4 tablespoons chopped pickled hot peppers 

8 slices American cheese (about 4 ounces)

Shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, ketchup and hot sauce, for topping 

Potato chips, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil, then add the onion, ground beef, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, undisturbed, until the beef starts to develop a crust, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip with a spatula, breaking up the meat. Continue cooking until browned, about 30 more seconds. Stir in the pickled peppers, then arrange the cheese over the meat mixture; remove from the heat and let melt.
  2. Spread the mayonnaise on both sides of the rolls. Divide the beef among the roll bottoms using a spatula. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, hot sauce and the roll tops. Serve with potato chips.
