Combine flour with salt and pepper. Coat beef with flour mixture, shaking off excess. Heat oil in a Cuisinart® 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; brown beef on all sides. Transfer to platter or cutting board; cool for a few moments. Rub mustard evenly over all sides of the beef. Place onions, carrots, celery, garlic, dill seed and peppercorns in the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Top with the mustard-coated beef. Pour in stock and vinegar. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 10 to 12 hours and press Low; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. Remove beef, transfer to storage container, strain and discard vegetables. Pour cooking juices over beef; cover and refrigerate overnight. One hour before serving, remove beef (reserve juices), and cut off visible fat. Place in a small roasting pan and reheat at 325°F for 30 to 45 minutes. Strain cooking juices into a Cuisinart® 2¾-quart saucepan; discard fat. Add flour, mustard and dill weed; stir over medium heat until sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat, cool briefly and stir in sour cream. Taste for seasoning and add ¼ teaspoon salt if desired. Cut meat into thin slices; pour some sauce over the top and pass the rest in a sauceboat.
