Bratwurst in Beer and Tomatoes

Super easy weeknight meal.  Add a salad to balance the heaviness in the dish.

12 oz. Beer
1 ½ Tbsp.  Soy sauce
1/8 tsp. Red pepper flakes
1 large onion, thickly sliced
3 Tbsp. Brown sugar
1 Tbsp. Vinegar
1 lb. Stadium bratwurst
Cherry tomatoes, quartered
Brown rice, cooked

Slice bratwurst into rounds, rinse over hot water.  Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add bratwurst and onion.  Cook until some slight caramelization appears.  Add remaining ingredients except tomatoes.  Cook covered on a low simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.  Add tomatoes.  Cook uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.  Serve over the rice.
