How do I make it ?
Combine meat, onions, cream cheese, 1/3 cup nuts, herbs and lime zest. Roll into 15 balls; flatten each into 1/4-inch-thick patty. Dip, 1 at a time, in flour, turning to evenly coat both sides of each patty; gently shake off excess flour.
Heat oil in large deep skillet on medium-high heat. Add half the patties; cook 3 to 4 min. on each side or until done (160ºF). Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining patties; cover to keep warm.
Cook remaining nuts with all remaining ingredients except basil in saucepan on medium heat 3 to 5 min. or until sugar is dissolved and sauce is slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
Serve meat cakes on basil leaves; top with sauce.
