^^^^^ YES, Even as a steak it will be tough unless it is braised..
Braising relies on heat, time, and moisture to break down the tough connective tissue known as "collagen" in meat, making it an ideal way to cook tougher cuts. Many classic braised dishes such as coq au vin are highly evolved methods of cooking tough and otherwise unpalatable foods. Slow cooking in a crockpot is also a form of braising.
