I'm considering safer ways to handle raw meat and it occurred to me that alcohol might be useful.

I'm considering, say, sealing pieces of meat in a container with 40% alcohol or higher in fridge or possibly freezer.

My question is what effects will this have on potential bacteria/parasites in and on the surface of the meat, and what will happen over time.

Different results as per higher concentrations/volume of alcohol and various temperatures are a plus.
