Also, when you add the flour to create the paste, stir gently and make sure it’s mixed well.  Continue to stir paste over low to medium heat briefly, being careful not to let paste burn.  This will help remove the raw flour taste.  Once this step is complete, then it’s time to add the beef broth, stirring gently, but constantly.  This will help keep the soup from sticking and reduce the chance of the soup becoming lumpy..
