I'm not sure. What do you mean by Chinese style?

I frequently make fried rice using whatever leftover chopped meat I have in the freezer, and whatever veggies I have on hand. Probably the only thing that makes it Asian is that I make it with calrose rice and soy sauce (technically tamari, since I'm GF).

I've eaten Thai fried rice, and Indian friend rice made with basmati, both were awesome.

I think many of us make ours about like you. I do add fresh ginger and always an egg. Oh, I do use regular rice though.

The style most Americans are familiar with from Chinese take-out. But then again, there may be more than one style of Chinese fried rice, considering the size of that country.

Fried rice is: rice, garlic, onion,soy sauce,egg, and meats.

"Style" is simply adding additional ingredients like:
Cashews, peanuts (Thai)
Chinese sausage, shiu ma (Chinese)
Spam (Hawaiian)

Yes, the calrose rice that is primarily marketed and sold as an Asian product because Americans typically prefer rice the consistency of Uncle Ben's.
