Personal Notes:
This recipe is very tasty. I used a 4 pound
chuck roast. 1 cup carrots didn't seem to be
enough so make enough for number servings
you want. I had enough time to let the hot
liquid cool in the refrigerator, then removed the
fat. Had almost 4 cups liquid (double the
amount called for in recipe) so I doubled the
flour. I added the sifted flour to the cold liquid,
and heated-stirring until flour was cooked.
