Cook until the mushrooms are slightly browned and soft. Reduce heat to medium and sprinkle on 1/4 cup flour. Stir to coat the mushrooms, and cook until the flour is lightly toasted. Add 1/4 cup dry Marsala wine and stir with a wooden spoon. Scrape up browned bits from the bottom. Cook until the wine is completely reduced. Slowly stir in 2 cups beef broth or stock and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil and cook, until the gravy has thickened. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup heavy cream.
