Can I slow-cook tough beef?

I apparently over-cooked some stir-fry beef. It's edible but horribly tough and sort of tasteless, though it's very lean, good beef. I want to know if I can salvage it by slow-cooking it overnight. Anyone?

I hardly ever cook meat but I found some nice organic beef (stir fry style) for cheap today. I looked up how to cook it online, it said quick and hot in a wok (though I don't have a wok so I used a frypan). I cooked it according to the instructions but maybe for too long because I was nervous about it being rare (not being much of a carnivore). Anyway this super lean, nice quality beef is now really tough. Is there any way I can salvage it?
There's some good suggestions on this post
but it's for pork, I'm wondering if I can apply the slow-cooker advice to beef... (thought I would not use BBQ sauce but veggies etc with tomatoes for moisture.) Anyone ever slow-cooked already tough beef?
