Rice noodle stir-fry with beef and broccoli

I really like using rice noodles for a quick weeknight meal. They're super-easy to work with and super-fast to cook. Those two qualities can give you a lot of confidence when you know you need to get dinner on the table. It had been a while since I used them and I was just thinking I should use them more.

Egelhoff potatoes, you ask? I'll get to those in a minute. 

This menu isn't an all-in-one weeknight wonder. But we can't always eat a one-pot thing every night. But the great thing about this menu is that there is really nothing to clean up even though you have to make 3 separate things. To me, that's huge! One of the reasons for minimal clean up is due to the technique of roasting vegetables. This menu took longer than the 30 minutes I shoot for but not too much longer. It was more like 45 minutes from start to finish.
