  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. 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.

  3. While broccolini roasts, heat a Dutch oven or large skillet with oil (portion for sweet potatoes) over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes with some salt and saute just until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer sweet potatoes to a serving plate and return pan to heat.

  4. To heated pan, add butter and then mushrooms. Saute mushrooms until golden brown and very tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with some salt and set aside (on a different plate from sweet potatoes).

  5. Return pan to heat and add cooking oil (portion for stroganoff).

  6. Add beef and saute, breaking it apart, until nearly cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.

  7. 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.

  8. Add stock and reserved mushrooms to the pan and bring to a simmer, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Simmer until thickened but still saucy, 3 to 4 minutes. Taste and season with some salt and pepper.

  9. Toss broccolini with lemon juice.

  10. Serve stroganoff over sweet potato noodles with broccolini on the side. Enjoy!
