What to do with couscous

We have a box of couscous and we’re not sure what to do with it. Couscous is not very common in my country so we’re not really familiar with it. We tried to cook it based on the instructions on the box but we’re not really sure if we did it right. It turned out like one lump. We were expecting fluffy like rice of quinoa. We had it with beef strips with a cream sauce and it just didn’t feel right. Not sure if the way we cooked it was wrong or the beef was not the right food to pair with couscous.

Any tips on how to cook it correctly or what to add to/pair with it? The box is still more than 3/4 full and I’d hate to waste it.
