I rate this 5 stars because it actually does taste good and it's easy to understand. And let's face it, were are all on this site because we aren't gourmet chefs! The great thing about fried rice is you can vary it so many ways and to your liking. Sesame oil is a flavoring oil, so I suggest using it only at the end to mix in, not to cook with (use any cooking oil instead). You can mix in any type of meat and veggies; frozen mixed veggie are my choice and takes so much less time than fresh. But make sure you drain well and cut everything to the same bite sizes. It's very distracting to eat fried rice with big chunks along the way. Depending on your purpose - ie a side dish of mainly rice or as a main dish - alter how much of your proportions. I personally like fried rice as a main dish, and steamed white rice as a side. So think visually how much of the various ingredients - equal part dairy (egg), rice, meat, and vegatable. In fact, the rice should only be enough to "bind together" the other ingredients to get a good balanced meal. Same as if you had a side of rice, side of veggies, and meat. For meals, I use 1 egg per person. Make sure the rice is "firm" so you don't have soft mashy rice - the point is that the rice should be individual little pieces even when stir fried. For more egg taste, scramble them up by itself. For blended egg taste, put beaten egg in with the rice. You can even skip pre-adding seasonings; put them on the table for everyone as condiments.
