Depends what your goals are.

A middle-of-the-road setup would be this:

30 minutes pre-workout:

5g BCAAs
a thermo/caffeine tab
a banana, optional

Halfway through workout:

sip on your protein shake and take 2-3g BCAAs

After workout:

Immediately after, take 60-80g of carbs through dextrose or just some fast acting carbs. Fruit is fine, banana's are good.

10 minutes later, take 60-80g protein preferably whey isolate with some glutamine mixed in.

I've seen a lot of stuff that shows that a preworkout shake may be more effective than a postworkout one.

This is my work out routine:

8:30am Beef/olive oil/fish oil/milk
10:30 Protein drink and banana
11:30 Lift. Drink 30g bcaa during
~1pm PWO Drink of whey and 40g of waxy maize carbs (this stuff is just as cheap as gatorade powder so i started buying it all the time...)
~2pm PPWO Meal - Chicken and carbs (raisins, whole wheat spaghetti, apple...)

So in the end the answer is both, but if I had to pick one I'd say it's the preworkout meal. It's the one in you and digesting and sending amino acids through you while working out and limiting muscle breakdown and such. But really i doubt it's really THAT important.
