  1. Set steaks out and allow them to come to room temperature.
  2. Slice onion in thin slices. Separate into rings. Slice fresh mushrooms. Using a grinder or mortar and pestle, grind the Herbs de Provence to fine powder to use as a rub for the steaks.
  3. In large skillet, brown onion rings in 2 Tbsp of the vegetable oil. Stir occasionally until lightly brown and translucent. While onions are sauteing, rub ground Herbs de Provence into each side of steak. Next, lightly sprinkle flour into each side of steak on top of herbs and rub into meat.
  4. Meanwhile, onions should be finished cooking. With slotted spoon, remove onions from skillet, moving to bowl or plate to be added later. Add another 1 to 2 tbsp oil to skillet. Saute mushrooms until they become tender, darker and lose some of their moisture into skillet. Remove mushrooms with slotted spoon and place with onions.
  5. Add last of oil to skillet. Skillet should be quite hot. Sear steaks in skillet until browned, approximately 5 minutes on each side.
  6. Add the 2 cups of beef broth you prepared to skillet and steaks. Return onions and mushrooms to broth. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer steaks approximately 75 minutes. Check to see that meat is tender. Remove steaks from skillet. Cover to keep warm while preparing gravy.
  7. Add dash of Worcestershire sauce to broth. Make a roux of 1 tbsp cornstarch and approximately 1/4 cup water. Slowly add roux to broth, mushrooms and onions, whisking constantly to keep gravy smooth. Cook gravy until it loses its opaque appearance turning translucent and bubbly.
  8. Serve steaks with the mushroom and onion gravy.
