    I ate my meal like a pig did. Is that correct?

    To me it sounds like you are referring to a particular pig, and I suppose you didn't mean to. If I'm right, and your intent is just to indicate bad table manner (or whatever you mean by this comparison), then the sentence would better read without 'did' IMO.
