Susan W had the same experience when she made that recipe (but with short ribs), she took the liquid out at the end and reduced it separately, saying: "I made this last night, but with boneless shortribs and one cup of liquid was just right. I took the meat and veggies out at the end and reduced the liquid just a little, but you'll have more flour in yours with a big roast, so you may not need to do that."

LJ is right. Reducing the sauce is the key. Reducing keeps the sauce fresh tasting. Adding flour would muddy the taste. If I remember correctly, I was speaking to someone who had a larger roast, therefore more flour because of that and the flour would have a long time to cook into the sauce.
