  1. Place the flour in a resealable plastic bag. Add the beef, a few pieces at at a time, and shake the bag to coat.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the beef, cooking until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the browned beef to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  3. Place the beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, and thyme into a slow cooker, and pour the stout beer on top. Cover and cook on Low until the meat is very tender, about 8 hours. Season with salt, then remove thyme. Garnish with parsley before serving.

Super easy, lacked flavor. Just so incredibly bland. We were all dissapointed because it smelled great from the fresh thyme.

As written this would have been bland for us. I mixed the flour with a lot of my low salt cajun seasoning and pepper. I also used a lot more fresh thyme, taking it out when ready to eat. Added a...

I enjoyed it. My family thought it was a bit bland, but not bad. I'll play around with some spices and seasoning next time, but I'll definitely make it again. So easy to make.
