In a large resealable bag, combine the flour, thyme, parsley, and pepper. Add the meat and toss to coat. Set aside.

In a large saucepan or small stockpot over medium-high heat, warm the butter and oil. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the meat mixture and cook until the meat is browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain off any fat and transfer the mixture to a 6- to 8-qt. slow cooker. Add the carrots, potatoes, stock, tomatoes, beer, soup, and brown sugar and cook on low until the meat and vegetables are very tender, 6 to 8 hours. Karin says: Serve with salad or French bread.
