Dairy Sweet Beef Burgers

When Meg and I were little our grandparents used to own and operate the local Dairy Sweet, an ice cream and short order restraunt in Donnellson, Iowa. I recently found out that my Aunt Mari had a copy of the beef burger recipe that they used at the Dairy Sweet and asked her for a copy. Here's what Aunt Mari sent. (Not sure how many sandwiches this makes)

The original recipe was for 10 lbs of ground beef.  I cut it in 1/4 & this is what I have on my recipe card.
2 1/2 lb ground beef
1 T dried onion
1 T salt
3/4 - 1 c. tomato juice
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. flour
Brown ground beef adding onion & salt.  Stir in flour, let it cook a few minutes.  Add ketchup & tomato juice.  Cook until grease is clear. Drain grease.
