Couscous recipes with Meat

When you think of Couscous recipes with meat the first that comes to mind is lamb or mutton. That's because of the muslim arab / berber origins of the dish. Merguez sausages are supposed to be made out of lamb meat too. Chicken is at least as popular though and if you do eat pork then why not try a couscous recipe with pork? Beef couscous is probably the least well known, and I've no idea exactly why that should be. A good piece of stewing beef cut into large chunks and slowly simmered in a rich gravy would make an excellent topping for any vegetable couscous dish.
