I think it was one of the earlier episodes but I can't remember. Maybe it was during a character's backstory or a flashback but it was only in 1 episode.

There was an episode in FMA Brotherhood where the scene would fade to a black screen with white Japanese text appearing vertically, and then fades back to the story, and the whole process is repeated several times throughout the episode as the story progresses. I thought it was during the Ishvalan extermination episode, but Riza Hawkeye was narrating that part so I don't know what other episode it could be.

I believe you're looking for the Youswell flashback, in episode 38 at around 6:52. This may not be what you're looking for, since it doesn't repeat throughout the episode; however, it's the only one I can really think of.

It starts with a black screen stating 1914年 (year 1914), followed by ユースウェル (Youswell), followed by various shots of the town and Yoki.

1914年 ユースウェル

These shots are interlaced with black screens of white text showing the dialog these characters are saying while in the flashback, since Yoki is narrating the scenario.
