You should use something like this. 

$str = "-1 save";
if ( preg_match("/^-1 (delete|hide|save)$/", $str ) === 1 ) {  echo "does match";} else {  echo "does not match";}

No, in regular expressions, the [ ] are for matching individual characters, not strings. You could instead perform a standard match in () and just negate the result of preg_match() with a !.
