So today the priest was in a hurry and only gave a penance(including an act of contrition) and said "I absolve you of all your sins".

Is that valid? He didn't say the other prayer. I know it's come up before and i should remember.

Yes, it's valid.

Quote:
Eugene IV teaches that the "form" of the Sacrament is really in those words of the priest: "Ego absolvo te a peccatis tuis in nomine Patris" etc.,

and theologians teach that absolution would be valid should the priest use, "Absolvo te", "Absolvo te a peccatis tuis", or words that are the exact equivalent (Suarez, Disp., XIX, i, n. 24; Lugo, Disp., XIII, i, nn. 17, 18; Lehmkuhl, de PÅ“nit., 9th ed., 199).

Quoted in the Catholic Encyclopedia.
