A shortcut, if you want to call it that, would be to construct your own MySQL Query using $wpdb https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/wpdb. This would allow you to join the posts table, the comments and the comment meta table and return posts that have specific values associated with comments. It would perform faster, but would take more work to get working. I’m not very proficient at using $wpdb.
