    There is no way I’d ever eat ribs at a function as they are way too messy. 

    The beef striploin sounds devine so that would be my pick:)

    I like both, but the first option includes onion $ mushroom- I love any veggies so it gets my vote!

    Short ribs arent like real ribs. They are braised so the meat falls off the bone. You literally just use your fork to pull it away from the bone. I love braised meat, so I choose that. 

    Also, it’s harder to mess up braised meat. Steaks are harder because they can be under or over cooked.

    The ribs are going to be way more tender.  No taste testing with your caterer?

    both sound delish but i can’t picture eating ribs at a wedding.  i think the striploin would be much easier for your guests.

    I just voted and it is currently 50/50.  Not much help, are we?  Surprised

    Short ribs usually aren’t bone in… and, even if they are bone in, usually they are braised and so tender they fall off the bone (like a lamb shank).

    I think visions of baby back ribs and messy fingers influenced the vote.

    Regardless, any chance you can taste either dish?  

    But, blindly, I’m a huge fan of braised meat (I think it has a better sucess rate with catering as well!).

    The short ribs has a higher probability of having them all come out delicious and moist. The cooking time will not vary between serving since they are braised to the point where it should be super tender. There’s usually no arguments between people as to what is the appropriate “done-ness”.

    However, with steaks, people are all over the place. Some people like rare, some like welldone, and what is medium rare to one person is medium well to another. I think the chances for this to come out tough and chewy is higher.

    So for the most goof-proof entree, I would go with short ribs.

    Short ribs aren’t eaten by hand/off the bone.  They’re not messy.

    And they are delicious, which is why I voted for them!

    I love short ribs! I order them anytime I’m at a restaurant that has them and think they would be an delicious choice at a wedding!

    I’m pretty the reason more people aren’t voting for the short ribs is because they are thinking of BBQ ribs, definitey not the same. There’s no mess involved with short rbis.

    @koukla1111:  I love love love short ribs so that’s my choice. To PP who said ribs are messy, short ribs aren’t messy at all because you eat them with a fork.
