There was a very nice chuck roast I almost bought instead.
I didn't use the chuck because I was hoping for more tender

Perhaps. The meat wasn't particularly braised in the pottage.
Mainly it was roasted, minced, added to onions and herbs with
chicken stock and simmered until the onions were tender. Then
breadcrumbs, spices and wine vinegar was added to taste. 
I do see where chuck or the shank would do well for adding
chewiness and flavor. But the sirloin worked well. 
Personally I agree with you in adding gristle and cartilege would
make this dish better.
Still, my version has gotten rave reviews.
