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