  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Heat a large saute pan with oil (portion for stroganoff) over medium-high heat.
  3. Add beef and saute until beef is browned on the outside, 3 to 4 minutes. Set beef aside (it will finish cooking in the sauce) and return pan to heat.

  5. Stir flour, paprika, and coriander into melted butter until no dry spots remain.

  7. While beef simmers, toss broccolini with red pepper flakes, balsamic vinegar, oil (portion for broccolini), and some salt and pepper. Spread out onto a sheet pan and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, shaking pan midway through.
  8. Bring a large stock pot with salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until al dente, tender but not soggy.
  9. Remove beef from heat and stir in sour cream. Season with some salt and pepper.
  10. When noodles are done, drain and rinse.
  11. When broccolini is done roasting, season with some salt and squeeze lemon juice over top.
