Heat a cast-iron skillet or large heavy griddle pan over medium-high heat. Combine the meat and spices and form into 6 balls with your hands. Add the oil to the heated griddle. Place the burger balls on the griddle and sear for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Then, using a spatula, press the balls down, flattening them down as you spread them out. You want a thin, crusty burger and that's all about creating surface area, so press away. Let the burger get a nice char on one side, and then flip so they get nice and crusty brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Butter and toast, or griddle, the sesame seed buns. Once toasted, add mustard. Place the burger on the bottom. Top the burger with ketchup and add some veggie pickles. Cover with bun and serve hot!
