What to do with overcooked chuck roast?

lchance926 | Oct 16, 201805:40 PM     26

I wanted to make French Dip sandwiches and asked the guy behind the butcher counter which cut of roast he’d recommend. That was my first mistake. He said to get a chuck roast and he’d shave it super thin for me. So against all instincts that’s what i got. I made my au jus in the slow cooker and it was delicious. I put my meat in and turned it up to high. I tasted after 10 minutes, and then 45 minutes. Both times it was tough. I then turned it to low and let it cook another hour. Completely overcooked. Not sure there’s any saving it, not a great cut of meat to begin with.

Any thoughts on anything i can do to save it?!?
