In other recipes like this, I've seen people use potato starch or rice flour, but haven't tried it here. You could also just omit the flour and it would still be delicious -- it just wouldn't have quite as much of a crust.

I bet arrowroot would work well.

Interesting recipe. I've never used flour in a pot roast recipe, so I'd think you could just omit it. OTOH, the crust sounds particularly appealing. I think I will try it with potato starch. That's usually my go-to sub.
