Carne Desmechada is a staple in most Colombian homes. It is a delicious, saucy, very tasty dish that can be prepared with inexpensive cuts. It can be prepared with or without the eggs. I personally love it with them, and my children prefer it without. This is a great food to make a lot of and keep frozen for the kids!
When you pack this dish for the freezer, place it in bags that are no more than an inch thick so that it thaws out easily and in a shorter period of time. Always thaw it out in your refrigerator by leaving it there overnight, or over running cold tap water. Beef keeps frozen for nine to twelve months if the temperature of your freezer is kept at 0°F
