  1. Peel and coarsely chop the onion, wipe and slice the mushrooms. Cut the steak into 2.5 cm (1 inch) cubes.
  2. Cook onions in olive oil until translucent, and put to one side.
  3. In a large frying pan brown the cubes of meat for about 10 - 12 minutes, then add the flour, stirring to prevent sticking and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Sprinkle on marjoram, thyme, and pepper and stir well.
  5. Add beef stock and wine to cover meat, cover pan, simmer on low heat for about 1½ hours, checking regularly and add more wine and stock if necessary to keep meat covered.
  6. Add mushrooms and onion to meat and cook for a further 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding small amounts of liquid if too thick, although the gravy should be thick like a sauce.
