Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet over medium heat and brown the brisket on all sides. Remove the meat from the skillet, and add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Stir in the garlic, onions and peppers and cook until translucent. Stir in the black pepper, browned meat, 1 cup water, seasoning and sofrito sauce. Simmer until the meat is tender and shreds easily, about 1 hour. Serve on top of white rice with beans.
A pressure cooker can be used to accelerate the cooking time of the brisket.
