Step 4: Do not unwrap the foil when the meat roll is done baking.  Let the roll cool down at room temperature for 30 minutes, then put something heavy on top of it (like a cutting board with a large jar on top, or a bag of beans or rice) and put in a refrigerator overnight.  (On a picture below, the meat roll in foil is under the cutting board and a heavy pickle jar is on top).
