Add the rice toss it around in the pot until all the grains are coated with oil. Add the apricots and 5 cups of chicken broth. Bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook at a strong simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Shape and cook the meatballs: While the soup is simmering mix the ground beef with the onion and 1 teaspoon salt. Roll into small (1-inch) balls.
