Cut slits several inches apart all over surface of pot roast.
Insert salt pork into slits, also a mixture of chopped onion, garlic, salt, peppers, and thyme.
In a Dutch oven, lightly brown the onions in heated butter.
Push to one side; brown meat on both sides.
While second side is browning add carrots, turnip, parsley, and bay leaf; cook, turning vegetables several times.
When meat is browned, add wine.
Cover tightly and simmer 3 hours, or until meat is tender, adding more wine or water if needed.
Remove meat to a heated platter.
