Mix ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil. Form 4 patties. Set aside.

Mix mayo and Sriracha; set aside.
Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over a medium high flame. Add vegetable oil. Press a light thumbprint in the center of each patty. This prevents the burger from rounding out. Place beef patties in pan and cook 4 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and top with cheddar cheese.
Toast brioche buns.
