Mandy, you are right, the flour at the end is not good. Cornstarch will work; however, I would stir 2 tablespoons of flour into 2 or 3 tablespoons of melted butter or oil and stir until brown. THEN add the remaining ingredients and cook for an hour or so.
I did not like the flour at the end.It tasted like an undercooked Roux.I did like the taste before adding the flour.Could it be possible to add cornstarch?
