A Little Rack of Pork

Costco sells 8 bone racks of pork for a very reasonable amount.  I love them but they're obviously too large for the two of us.  I bring one home, cut it in half, cook one and freeze one for later.  The prep is real simple...slice about 2 cloves of garlic, make little slits all around the roast, and shove the garlic slices in.  Season liberally with salt , pepper, paprika and granulated garlic and then lightly rub the roast with olive oil.  Place in a small roaster, add about 1/2 cup water to the bottom of the pan, cover and roast at 325F for about 2 hours or until the internal temp reaches about 150F.  Uncover and continue roasting until the internal temp reaches about 170F...about another 30 minutes.  If you decide to roast all 8 bones, you'll obviously need to extend the cooking time.
Note: The accumulated juices make for a great gravy base while the roast rests after cooking.
