Overrated: Filet mignon
"Hands down, the most overrated cut of beef is filet mignon. This is a non-working, unused muscle that is prized for its tenderness. Unfortunately, tender is a one-hit wonder when it comes to steak because it is one-dimensional, flavorless, and downright boring. Serve it to me at a wedding and I'm fine, but don’t ask me to order and pay for it at a restaurant."
Underrated: Hanger steak, chuck
"There are a couple of really wonderful underrated cuts of beef, starting with the hanger steak. The hanger steak comes from the plate, which is the lower belly of the animal, and literally 'hangs' from the diaphragm. You’ll find it to be rich and full with a hearty, beefy flavor, similar to that of a ribeye, but without the price tag. I also love any of the newly popular chuck steaks. Chuck refers to the shoulder and neck of the animal and yields some incredibly well-marbled and flavorful cuts, such as the Denver, flat iron, and shoulder petite tender cuts. All three of these are incredibly supple and rival any of the more expensive and highly recognized cuts of meat."
