3. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix with hands. Form beef into two patties.
4. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat. Melt butter or oil in skillet, and carefully place patties in the pan. Let patties cook for about 2-3 minutes before flipping (cooking time will depend on how thick your patty is). Once flipped, place goat cheese on each patty to warm and soften cheese. Cook second side for another 2-3 minutes.
