Chuck roast on a stovetop and tender... is this possible?

Katie Nell | Feb 21, 200705:16 AM

I made Marcella's Pot Roast of Beef with Garlic, Anchovies, Vinegar and Pancetta from Marcella Says last night. It calls for a 2.5 lb. chuck roast to be cooked on the stovetop, covered, for about 2 hours and 15 minutes, or until tender. Well, mine never got tender! I've only ever cooked chuck in the oven, so I'm just wondering if this method would ever make for a tender roast? Has anyone had experience with this? Also, any ideas on how to salvage the meat? It was not what I would consider edible last night, though my husband would probably chew on it! :-)
