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."

thanks, Lindsay-Jean. I didn't use a lot of flour initially but i can try to thicken or just reduce..

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.
