Poll: When you serve short ribs or any other braise to Company (the kind of guests you'd dig out the good china for) do you include the veggies from the braise?
When I make this for close friends and family, we eat it all -- and then we lick our plates. I don't recall being served braised veggies with the meat at restaurants, though. What do fancy folks do?
If it matters, I think I'll be serving the short ribs over soft polenta with yet-to-be-determined veggie sides (so any suggestions for those would be welcome, too).
