Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large ovenproof saute pan or roasting pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
Sprinkle the short ribs on all sides with the salt, pepper, garlic salt and seasoned salt. Pat the seasonings into the meat. Dredge the short ribs in the flour and pat off any excess flour.
Place the short ribs in the pan and sear until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots, celery and onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add the wine and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock, veal stock, water, undrained tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer. Cover and place in the oven. Roast for 2 hours. Then add the potatoes, cover and roast for an additional 30 minutes.
Be sure to occasionally check the liquid in the pan to make sure there is enough to keep the meat moist and simmering. Add more stock if necessary.
Serve over Three Cheese Polenta.
In a large saucepan combine water, polenta and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir over high heat until mixture boils; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer polenta for 25 to 30 minutes or until smooth, whisking occasionally to ensure a smooth consistency. Remove from heat and stir in the cheeses and butter. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and keep warm.
