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