Heat a large skillet with oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and ground beef and cook, breaking the beef apart until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper and cook for a minute more, until everything is evenly seasoned. Set the ground beef aside to cool slightly.
