Make marinade, add beef filets and set aside. Slice green onion and mushrooms long ways. Lightly oil and fry until softened. Remove and set aside. Slice orange and grill slices just to get a little color. set aside. When meat is marinated (at least 30 minutes) remove from marinate and dry slightly. Lightly coat with flour. (optional) Heat pan til very hot. Fry meat til it has reached your desired temperature and remove. add marinade to pan and reduce until slightly thick.
