NOTE:
To intensify beef flavor, I added a splash of Minor's Au Jus liquid which worked very well.

NOTE 2:
For another layer of flavor you could add some cognac to the onions before you add the mushrooms and burn off the alcohol. Other wines/liquors would work as well.

Note 3:
If you want more of a gravy, add some heavy cream at the end.
