TO FREEZE: Combine the ingredients for the marinade all together in a Ziploc bag, add the meat.
TO PREPARE: Thaw. Pan cook meat with marinade, until done to your liking. Remove the meat, add the butter, then onions and mushrooms saute for 3 minutes over moderate heat. Add flour to the pan and cook another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Whisk in stock and reduce for another minute. Pour over meat and serve.
