Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
Toss broccolini with cooking oil (portion for broccolini), vinegar, red pepper flakes, and some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
While broccolini roasts, heat a Dutch oven or large skillet over medium heat. Add butter and then mushrooms to melted butter. Saute mushrooms until golden brown and very tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with some salt and set aside.
Return pan to heat and add cooking oil (portion for stroganoff).
Add beef and saute, breaking it apart, until nearly cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.
To beef add garlic and thyme leaves and stir until fragrant, ~1 minute. Sprinkle seasoning mixture over beef and stir until no dry spots remain.
Pour white wine into pan, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Cook for 1 minute.
Add stock and reserved mushrooms to the pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until thickened but still saucy, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and whisk in sour cream. Taste and season with some salt and pepper.
If noodles were cooked ahead, reheat in the microwave. (Add some more oil if they are sticking together.)
Toss broccolini with lemon juice.
Serve stroganoff over noodles with broccolini on the side. Enjoy!
