  3. Use tongs to place the meat on a tray or large cutting board. Shred the meat and return it to the pot.
  4. Stir in the worcestershire, red pepper, tabasco, and corn (if desired). 
  5. Taste test and then salt and pepper to taste. 
  6. Scoop into bowls and serve with cornbread.

If you have leftover pulled pork (or canned pulled pork) you can skip the first step. Add the pulled pork into the bottom of the pot with some broth and then add the other ingredients as stated in step 2.
