To make the salsa verde, add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until it becomes a smooth sauce, scraping down the sides periodically. Pour sauce into a bowl and set aside.
Mix ground beef with salt and pepper. Divide into thirds and shape each third into a burger.
Heat a cast-iron skillet with a drizzle of vegetable oil. When hot, add the burgers. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Move skillet to oven and cook for 5 minutes. Remove burgers from oven and place on the buns.
Turn oven broiler on. Place slices of cheese in a cast-iron baking dish. Sprinkle with dried oregano and red pepper flakes. Broil for 2–3 minutes. Keep a close eye on it, until top of cheese starts to brown and melt. Remove from oven and transfer cheese onto the burgers.
Place a big spoonful of salsa verde on top of the cheese and add a few slices of red onion. Place the top bun on top and serve!
